Hi @Ariel
I'm currently participating to a call for projects where this stone is mandatory for project achievement.
What would be the procedure to achieve this?
Do we have here any kind of blocker/difficulty?

This functionality is extremely necessary

This seems to be a valid case to prioritize a little bit this request.

Is this blocked on a certain developer's knowledge, or could anybody work on the code to make the code support this functionality?
