Almost everything in the free software landscape was created by a
volunteer. If the feature hasn't yet been implemented it means two of
one thing:

1. That demand isn't high enough
2. (Perhaps a subset of [1]) That no-one has implemented it yet.

Although something perhaps should be provided, if someone notices that
missing feature (i.e., you), then that usually means someone else has
too, and it will probably eventually appear one day. If you really want
to have this, without writing any code yourself, you could file a
wishlist bug either on Launchpad, or at your preferred upstream.

That perhaps could be read more brashly than I wrote it to sound,
