It isn't really user feedback, but feedback from a developer of
similar functionality, which is something very different.
Pedantically, the developer could also be a user of the library, but
their main point of view is as a developer of such functionality, and
their opinions are influenced by that. If they've put a lot of effort
into something, then it's likely that they will overvalue it. Feedback
from other developers is of course extremely useful, but the
difference should be appreciated.
