Unfortunately, Tree apparently does not. His reply to me was private so I 
won't post it. But he doesn't sound impressed.

I have them occasionally. Sorting the good ideas from the bad ones is 
always the hard part.

As Tree knows, I just keep hounding him semi-periodically if I don't think 
his reason for refusing to implement something is good enough. I think this 
is the third or fourth year I've brought this bandmap one up. I'm pretty 
sure he'll submit on both of these one day. I've started posting my 
suggestions now instead of simply sending them privately, since I guess 
that he might take a suggestion more seriously if a few people make 
comments like yours, George.

(FWIW, I still think the best thing I persuaded him to do was add the 
keypad memories. I couldn't manage without being able to hit that nice fat 
numeric-0 key and have it send my call.)
