iinm it started as a technical issue and noone stepped up to want to maintain 
this feature, so it's not there.

this besides that it's a bad idea, of course...

we need to keep every choice open, but we need to restrict the newbie by 
default. someone who knows what he's doing can likely get this to work, after 
makeing some changes... but i'm not gonna spend time on it.
