Hi Alex,
as this is a contest, I believe it's better to not post publicly about
your ideas and just submit a patch (which you'll mark private).

You can ask for clarifications about the feature, on the related
artifact, but try to not give implementation ideas to other...

If we don't get a better patch for this idea near the end of the
contest, I'm not yet sure what we'll do.
