Indeed. There was some discussion about this idea in this mailing list a few months ago, and the conclusion IIRC is that it is indeed an interesting feature, and there's an approach which is apparently feasible too without too much trouble, but no one is taking care of the idea right now. It'd be good to find someone that is interested in trying it out (hint hint). -- Gustavo Niemeyer http://niemeyer.net http://niemeyer.net/blog http://niemeyer.net/twitter
