Marking this as INVALID - there really isn't a bug report here. We would need what the exact problem is as well as reproducible steps. I quickly reviewed the link you provided - if there is a specific request please put it explicitly on our bug tracker as we don't like having requests on different infra that we just get a link to.

Thanks for your understanding and apologies for the long delay. Also removed "security" as this isn't a bug (it's a feature request) and a feature request isn't a security vulnerability, it's just a request for something additional added.
