This sounds great that you guys are willing to support this capability.

Do you know of any users for this?

Sounds right to me.

With documentation, anything that makes it easier for users is good.  What

I would have to see some examples before commenting on this, except to say
that I have almost never had a case where this was actually true for
machine learning sorts of applications except where people were drawing the
definition of unit test very, very tightly.
