i need/want the same functionality, too. I will work on it soon (1-2
weeks). Currently I am busy with cleaning up the error handling stuff and
after finishing that, i will go on. I don't know if Ryan will like the
work. And in the end, if it's not becoming official, it won't solve your
and my problem of an independent maintenance as as library. 

Btw. Ryan is not very release happy and all non-bugfix changes have gone
into a development branch and i haven't seen any packages using that
branch. It looks like everybody is relying on the stable branches. So until
there will be a new "stable" branch, compiling your own version in may be
the only solution.
