I'm sure the feeling is mutual. More to the point, I really seriously
doubt that any of the core developers would consider this idea either
because it's been rejected in the past and, so far, nobody has offered
anything that hasn't been heard before. You are welcome to ask them,
of course, but that is the feeling I get. There are much easier ways
to accomplish the level of control required.
