I did some preliminary work on this, right before I became really
busy. I also have a branch for it in my github fork of the Tools.

I'm hoping to work on it on and off, right after I finish fixing the
PSP issues mentioned in the forum, but it's probably a good idea to
write it down anyway.

If so, then (unless you just want to implement it right away :) I would recommend recording it someplace so it won't be forgotten. Maybe this could even be part of a GSoC task (so an entry on the "Open Tasks" list on the wiki might be appropriate); at the very least, I would recommend adding it to the TODO list on the Wiki, or submitting a feature request, including some of the ideas discussed in this thread.
