Hello Robert,

For of all, thanks for sharing your ideas on how to enhance TYPO3.

The answer is no as you found out.

Same here.

For sure.

I would suggest opening a feature request on forge.typo3.org. Make some
buzz to get "votes" for it and above all try to find interested parties for

1) Having some estimation on the workload for it
2) Having someone or best 2 persons working on the implementation
3) Possibly funding this change or "rewarding" persons from 2)

We have Core code sprints from time to time, perhaps participating in
the event in one way or the other could be a good way to have it.

Just a few ideas.

Kind Regards
