I don't want to be the one who blocks all new ideas here, but can we
please have a design discussion, before even mentioning the word
'patch'? This is one of those occasions where a new contributer will
become very frustrated if he/she actually writes the patch and that
discussion will be had after patch submission.

Thanks!

Thomas, if you do feel like implementing this feature, dev@ is where
this discussion should take place, so, the request still stands :-)

bye,

Erik.
