none that we know of...

a few people have offered only to never be heard from again. (Dark

assuming the code:

1) is not extremely buggy
2) isn't sloppy (ie, it won't be a nightmare for us to maintain if you
disappear off the face of the earth)
3) doesn't break abstractions
4) correctly implements the feature and addresses all the concerns
documented for this feature

and assuming that you give us copyright assignment, I see no reason your
patch wouldn't be acepted into the main branch.

you will likely want to read the documentation on this feature in bugs
#17540 and #17541 in
