/me has the same concern. May be keep it in the STATUS file as an available 
patch. After all there was only one request for this feature. If the patch is 
available those who want it can try it and if tested enough, can enter 1.29.

regarding the patch. why do you keep both IV and SV? Also looks like you mix 
usages of NULL and Nullsv for SV* values. Otherwise looks good.
