Here is a patch that tries to implement this. Meta-commands should work
from 7.4 to 8.4-devel releases. It was not hard to do, and I don't think
it really is a burden to maintain.

One part left to fix is \du and \dg commands. I would be glad to
continue to work on this but I would prefer to have comments before.
