The fact that it's currently not supported is because the WC can't
represent it. There's a branch to implement it (on which I'm working -

Initial work has been done and the branch-code is working, except for
files with properties...

BTW, if you have time to work on it, I'll commit my latest changes
tonight. We can work on it together.
