At the same time, I think it would be very useful to poll GNOME users
for what extensions they are using (if any). I think you'll find that
it's very likely that more users have installed (for example) the
Alternate Tab extension than are using the default behavior (and it
would also be interesting to know whether those using the default
behavior know about the extension).
Some other extensions that I personally know a great many people cannot
or hiding them entirely (Wayland) [...]
This is plain wrong. They work as bad/well on wayland as on X. The
only thing is there is no systray icon api for wayland applications.
Only X11 apps (through xwayland) can use them.
