Just noting that it wasn't me that made that suggestion, it was Dale.
Credit where credit is due and all that. FWIW, I agree it'd be nice, but
also think it sounds like it it could be more work than it's worth --
unless someone with the skills and the itch wants to scratch it, of course.
(I hadn't replied to this thread previous to this. Not that I hadn't
thought about it, but for a moment there, I was wondering if I had replied
when half asleep (I don't drink so couldn't use /that/ excuse), thus no
memory of it, and was wondering in alarm what else I might have said! So
it was with some relief that I realized it was Dale's suggestion you were
talking about, not mine. =:^)
