I think one of the developers would probably implement this even without
wanting it personally just to stop all the requests for it, if it was a
simple problem.  There's a message from Mark linked from the FAQ that
outlines all the issues attached to this, about how it would be managed.
Because it's so complex, it would really take a lot of thought and work, and
so requires someone really passionate about it.

If you (now or later) have other ideas about good improvements, please do
send them along - even if we're not interested personally, if we can see the
value and it's not going to take a huge amount of time, then we'll probably
add it at some point.
