Someone once worked on a patch for this, but it didn't go anywhere
because they didn't figure out the right place to hook into. You could
search for the patch on this list. There might also be an issue in the
bts which you should look up. If there isn't one, you should probably
make one.

I'm happy to help with all this, but FYI, I can be a bit finicky about
what code gets in.
