I agree. If this feature is missing it likely to be experienced as a 
(biggish) bug by users. Provided there is low chance of this feature 
impacting stability or causing breakage etc etc, I would say that not 
having this feature is worse than having it but there being a few bugs 
left in it.

I say put it in, and we'll take any bug risks. (It sounds pretty safe 
according to Aaron anyway).
