I'm not sure if you've asked this before but certainly others have and the 
answer is always the same. Until a database engine can be found that doesn't 
make the program appear to lock up while doing a query this feature can't be 
implemented. Even if this was an on-demand feature I know what would happen, 
people would turn it on and then the list would be flooded with messages 
asking why loadstone appears to lock up at a regular interval.

Then we would need an additional setting "Point announcement" with parameters "off", "Checkpoints", "Database", "Both".
