As far as I know, there is no bug filed against this, which seems to imply
that we haven't had significant issues.

Not anytime soon as far as I'm concerned. We do have a comment in the code
indicating there had been a plan, but I don't think anyone is actively
working on it.  Because we haven't had much complaints from users and
developers and supporting it requires so much work, I personally think it's
not worth the effort.
