yeah, I suggested it. The best way is not to petition it or anything, 
but to implement it as a python based lens and submit it as an extra. I 
will do that at some stage, but it would be great if someone beat me to 
it. The lens I have is functional, but an ugly hack of the default apps 
lens. Since most of what I did was rip out code someone else spent time 
writing I kind of doubt it would ever get in like it is, plus it is in 
Vala which I don't really understand very well.
code is here, help yourself
