Yes, good point.  I'll try to pick better text for votes in the future.

What was completely lacking in this case was a compelling use case for the 
requested feature addition.  As I've stated elsewhere, I think there is a

provide such a use case, preferably in the form of working code everyone 
involved can evaluate...
