It doesn't really come into play for me. Its pretty hard to justify to a customer that we're going to work on X first because "that's what the devs want". I think the item in question should be justified based on its own merit, not as a "we're just trying to make developers happy".

I think the issue is a lot of developers don't spend enough time trying to understand the business side. Because of this they fail to articulate the value a certain item may bring to the company.
