Are you ever going to let this thread die? You've aleady found that as
many people are against it as for it. You've been informed it will
break existing things (and then you argued about that). You've been
presented with the perfectly good alternative of zipping or tarballing
your document directory, and you found things you didn't like about

Here's why what you want will never get built:

* Developer time is very valuable, with lots of competing improvements.

* Your idea is somewhere between unpopular and lukewarm popular.

* Nobody actually committed to writing the code.

* You never offered to help write the code.

If you value your credibility, your best move now is to let this
thread die.
