Take a look at the following. Would be a great feature to add. (search
the mail archives for a full discussion, we should rehash that on the
jira, or at least link the jira to that thread - would appreciate if
someone could add a comment to the jira with that.)

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).
