It's not a question of money (but feel free to contribute as much as you 
like) but of what this feature is for? I've yet to hear a good reason for 
adding this feature. This feature as you describe it would be a rather large 
code change to cover a rather small edge case. Other than you nobody has 
ever mentioned needing this feature or responded to any of the previous 
descussions about it. To make a long message short this feature is just not 
going to be written (it's not even on the todo list) unless there's some 
very good reason for doing it. Or unless someone else can/will write this 
without breaking the rest of the program.
