Several methods..

Supplied patches often get a high priority (though not in this case, since 
we have a patch that is very complicated and not easy to apply since it is 
based off of different implementations of the expunge code that is in the 
2.3 CVS).

Quite honestly, development priorities are most often (Though not always) 
set around what CMU needs most at the time.  Sort of selfish, but very 
true.  Things like virtual domains got implemented because Ken was bored 

Another way to indicate your interest is with a hefty donation to CMU, of 
course :)
