Yes, I'm entirely with you here. That's a feature I've been waiting for
for a while already.

Did you contact the upstream author? As far as I'm informed he was

I didn't hear since.

Anyway, thanks for your patch which looks quite good at a first glance.
I'll review and test later so that it will end in Wheezy before the freeze.
