This is a pretty cool idea. I've been closing out bugs and working on feature request recently (thanks to Juergen too!) in anticipation of a new release soon. The rest of the week I'll be traveling, but next week I can look at it.

Please put in a feature request (you can just copy this email w/ Jason and Joel's comments) into the request itself:

Also, as Joel mentioned it, the mailing list (secureideas-base-user) is here:
