I think this is a great suggestion. It is also one that will take some 
time and effort. For this reason, I am thinking about opening a bounty 
system and soliciting donations for features like these as they are not 
directly related to the most pressing issues, but if there is a 
finanical incentive that would allow us to block off time and/or hire 
part-time help, then we could elevate things like these to the top of 
the heap.

Speaking of which, how would community feel about something like bounty 
system if that would move us forward faster in terms of development? 
Alternately, how about a kickstarter or an indiegogo project?
