The think about open source is that there is no distinction between
developer and user. The developers develop because they want to use the
code. And when somebody wants to use a feature that doesn't exist, then
they can develop it.

In short, if you want this feature, you can do this yourself and post a
patch to this list so it gets included in the next release. There is no
paid "dev team" for any of the commons code.
