It should, but...

... as it is, if you need that feature it's easily done - see Dan's 
example. It's not a very pressing issue anyway. Given that, I assume 
it's very unlikely that one of the regular developers spends much time 
on it.

So, feel free to submit a feature request, but don't expect it to be 
implemented any time soon.

If you created a working patch, though, I assume it would be quickly
