One of the lessons I've learned early on in my career as a software developer is that if I have a suggestion for a feature that people actually want, the response is very often along the lines of "great, when can you demo it?"

I always have more items on my plate than I have time to complete, so when I know a suggestion means an additional work item for myself, when I'm already swamped...I either withhold the idea, even if (IMO) it might turn out to be a great feature, or I discuss it with a coworker and let him bring it up with The Powers That Be (even if it means he gets credited with the idea).

It's often the case that I'm still the one who's going to end up implementing it anyway, but at least they are the ones asking me to do it; it's not me offering to take on the additional work. So that gives me a little room to negotiate some extra time.
