As I've said before, if somebody creates a patch that addresses the 
use cases I pointed out, I'd be happy to accept it.

Please see:


and the thread surrounding it for details.

Making it sound like I simply reject patches in this area with no 
reason, isn't at all helpful, and I'd appreciate it if you stop doing so.

Perhaps you could solicit volunteers to help develop an appropriate 
patch, propose possible approaches, etc., or ask for clarification if 
my previous explanations of what the patch needs to do are not clear.
