If a ticket has not been moved to the Vetted state by Rich Hickey, it is unknown whether it is of interest to be added to Clojure at all. The default answer to any change to Clojure, until there is a compelling argument to the core Clojure developers otherwise, is "no". That said, JIRA tickets tend to be left open rather than declined if there is no compelling argument for declining it.
For some more background, see here, in particular the "Clojure Governance and How It Got That Way" article linked from there: https://dev.clojure.org/display/community/Contributing FAQ
For details on Vetted, and other JIRA ticket statuses used by the Clojure core team, see here: https://dev.clojure.org/display/community/JIRA workflow
Voting on tickets (there is a "Vote" link near the top right of the page if you log in to your JIRA account first) can in some cases help get attention to them sooner than tickets without votes, but there are no guarantees on time lines.
