Hi Darshit,

unfortunately I'm currently overloaded with my work, so I only have rare 
occasions to ever get to gnulib's code. From your description it looks the 
feature is omitted entirely, perhaps due to the lack of time to implement it 
in 2012, but I think it is certainly doable. I'll try to look at it in a week 
or two, hopefully this part is not so complex. Pull requests are welcome 
anyway! ;-)
