This is a rather old topic.  Here is one from 2006:

    https://public-inbox.org/git/Pine.LNX.4.63.0611281426311.30004@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/

which was referred to in another discussion in late 2008:

    https://public-inbox.org/git/20081227070228.6117@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/
    https://public-inbox.org/git/7vabaijvxl.fsf@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx/

I am not sure if the reasons why the last effort was retracted still
apply to this round (the world certainly has changed in the past 10
years); it would be good to explain why this time it is different
;-).

Assuming that the new configuration variable is a desirable thing to
add, the change to the code looks OK.  Documentation updates may
need more thought in the light of past discussions, though.

Thanks.
