I've been planning on doing something like this for a while actually,
but had held off because I didn't have time to do the GUI parts of
the work in time for the 1.8.7 release. Doing this isn't very
complicated except that it will come at a performance cost when enabled,
and I need to refactor the GUI a fair amount in order to have a place
for this.
