I would rather not want to include it upstream due to the additional
dependency. However, I really like the idea and think there is definitely a
value having that as an option. I see two possibilities and I have no
preference in either direction, either we put this as a diff on the website or
alternatively we maintain this in git as a branch. The website has the
advantage that it would allow you to easily maintain that patch and put up new
revision on your own. What do you think?

Thanks this patch, I like the idea!
