That's ok.

Is seems not even mentioned in the tutorial.  Looks like an omission.

Patch appreciated, although...

That's always a compromise.  Then, there's the question of what

it can be done in the code and it needs extra documentation (although
that's lacking now too).  Usually, such a feature is added first as an
option, the default may change later.
