Hi, this is great, I believe this feature was asked by the users from

Could you explain it in more detail?

It would be best if you attached the changes as a patch to a new bug

Alternatively, send it to me off-list, make sure to change the file type 
to .txt, otherwise it'll probably get rejected, too.
