Actually, I misunderstood your question. Personally, I also don't think
it's worth the effort. But it's come up a few times already, so is
obviously something some group of people want.
The effort, also, is actually quite small as can be seen on the branch.
Perhaps it's even an effort saver if it prevents the topic coming up
again and again ;)
