Increase the current Bar resolution compression range

Currently, bar resolution is set to 1-30. So for a daily chart one can choose a compressed daily of up to 30 days as one bar. From there you must choose monthly or quarterly thren yearly.  It also seems the compression is based on calendar days rather than bars.  These are absurd jumps in values and not proportional at all.
I would like to request this be altered.  I want to be able to compress daily bars into values way high than monthly, but not in precise monthly or quarterly intervals.  Therefore, all that needs be done is raise the current peak of 30 to a value that is much higher. Make it 1,000 or perhaps no maximum value. Does it really matter? I want to be able to have the choice to plot the whole daily database for example of a market in any number of bars I choose, whether that be 1 bar for each daily bar, or 144 daily bars for each bar , or 300 daily bars bars for each bar. 
Currently I am forced to jump from 30 day (monthly) to 90 days (quarterly). This is an absurd jump and is not proportional.
This should be an extremely easy program change to make. 
Also, I would like to be able to choose between calendar and simply bars.  Currently 10 bar compression means 2 weeks most of the time. But what happens is ther eis a holiday? Is it still 2 weeks? I have no idea without wasting my time checking.  PLEASE just provide the choice to plot by trading bars.  This way when I select 10 days, I know each bar will ALWAYS represent 10 trading days.
This is an EXTREMELY important request for me.

This simple request, which would generate an instant sale hasn't even been looked it.  Posted it almost 2 months ago now.  You seriously have to wonder where MC management lies with their software.  Are there so many bugs to be fixed that they haven't got time to add new features or modify existing ones? Are they not interested in gaining neww customers? What exactly are their goals?

MIND BLOWING....5 YEARS since my very simple but enormously powerful request, and it says its still UNDER REVIEW? LOL Seriously? You guys are still reading and considering it each day for 5 years? Otherwise why say its under review? Something seriously wrong there..considering it would barely be more than a few minute coding update.

Please explain how you allow a feature request to remain under review for 5 years??? Surely management would consider that unacceptable? Surely the programmers would feel inadequate that they have not been able to make a decision one way or another? It's simply beyond my understanding on ANY level.
