Hi Bastien,

since you copied me, I guess you want my comment?

I think this is very useful functionality and I would vote for putting it into 
the core.

The documentation should be kept as compact as possible, I think without an 
example, just describe the functionality. Maybe Jarmo can write a little 
tutorial for Worg and document it there more extensively?
