Actually, that's how it is supposed to work right now. I use the word
"supposed" cause I've never tried it out. But the code is there.

The feature will continue, and after thinking about it a bit more, I don't

the main use case. Though I'm not particularly happy about how badly the
performance degrades when the RMM is in use.
