Fine.  I will add them one of these days.

We lack a lot of infrastructure for that, like access from Lisp to
data structures manipulated by the display engine.  If I were to write
all that, I'd probably have no time left for development and fixing
bugs.  It would be a fine exercise for someone who'd like to learn the
display engine internals, though, so motivated people are welcome...
