Well, I may overlook something, of course, but I believe that this request
probably shouldn't fall into the category of things which are
difficult/time-demanding for the compiler people (if it should be
implemented, of course, but I haven't seen any arguments against it raised
yet). If you believe that it may be difficult, please clarify it.

I understand that the requested behaviour needs to be described well, of
course, but if my understanding is correct, requiring the original poster
to implement it himself may not be appropriate in this case (not very
efficient - a lot of learning effort necessary for the original poster
compared to hopefully limited effort for existing core team members). It
is important to notify the poster that filing the feature request doesn't
guarantee that it gets implemented (soon or ever). Nevertheless,
_requiring_ all suggestions to be accompanied with a patch is IMHO too
