No, it was not meant ironically. If it in due time would work as well as the animated jetways can work it would be a great feature that probably would scale well.
I do appreciate the complexity of it though. The jetways are complex, need a lot of configuration to work, both scenery and aircraft side, and I think there is a tool for placing them. In addition and to make them usable for scenery and aircraft developers there is also documentation.
As the ground services currently are mostly done aircraft side, there is probably very little commonality between them. The features that mostly are done FlightGear side probably also have rather little in common, as they nearly always was developed as descrete features by different developers. Integrating those in an extensible framework is no small task.
