Didn't mean to put words in Paul's mouth. It was Robert who said he'd
rather remove it.

On second reading I hope this didn't come across as harsh. I'm always
glad to help and offer alternatives. Furthermore, you're always
welcome to add such features yourself and perhaps there's community
interest in maintaining such a patch, but I would guess it's unlikely
to see upstream inclusion and probably fruitless to ask for the
committers to put time toward it.
