Since no one has responded to this for some time I would estimate that
not many people particularly dislike your idea. So feel free to open
an issue about it on the tracker (after checking that there isn't
already an open issue and that your problem is not already solved in
the most recent release):

On the other hand evidently not many people are very enthusiastic
about this idea so it's possible that the tracker issue will not go
anywhere unless you write the patch yourself.
