It would probably be much less work to have someone simply fix your gadget which did this.

I figured as much when I found the same request lingering from 2014 for Commons, but thought it best to go through the motions just in case.

If there is still interest in this extension, please see my comment at T145966#3382152 (Basically, extension needs to be modernized. Also be good if usecase was clarified)
