OFF TOPIC:
I honestly do not mean any offence, just out of curiosity.
If you guys care about money and time why would you spend the best years of your
life basically copying commercial products for free? Because for a person with
higher than average IQ far less than one percent of any program is creative and
needs some thinking and the bulk of it is just a million stupid details.

I just don't follow/understand your thinking. Maybe I am naïve.
I do not have experience with open source and I kind of thought open source guys
do not need or care about money and time.

John

That feature has been on the TODO list for years. However, nobody has
stepped forward to either write it, or to fund working on it. If your
company has programmers or money to build this feature, it could
probably get done fairly quickly (as in, next version).
