I actually suggested the exact same thing back in 1998 ( Link to post in
archives: ),
but I never recieved much response. As I remember it, the emails I
recieved where along the line of; "too much effort for too little gain,
use clustering instead". I would still be very interrested in such a
feature, but like back in 1998 this is still *way* out of my league to
try to implement (but I'd be happy to help in testing :).
