We use Jira to track features, bugs, everything really. Choose "New
Feature" as the type when reporting.
As for the PR being useful, I haven't looked super closely, but I could see
this being potentially useful in a logging flow where a developer batches
up multiple log messages to send to a custom HTTP endpoint or similar. It
could allow for custom JSON payloads in this example (e.g., bulk index
request in Elasticsearch to save multiple records at once).
