Well, it is not me suggesting this patch, it is Emeric Vigier. But yes, one of 
our clients asked for this functionality, so I really want this patch applied.

As for previous rejections, the response of ThomasP[1] and Arnout[2] seems to 
indicate that they would be willing to accept this functional addition 
provided that it is (1) properly documented[1], and (2) prints a "big fat 
warning"[2]. Something like Thomas' scenario description[3] should be added to 
the documentation part of this patch.

Thanks for reminding us this previous discussion.
