I suspected this, now I have confirmation.

That's a good suggestion. Hence I think that for this purpose I will
try to operate with Python as soon as I have learned to handle this
language sufficiently.

I don't know if I really can. In fact, unless rules have changed
recently (can you confirm?), whenever in the past I have tried to open
any bugs of this type at Bugzilla Gnome, I was responded that wished
features are not real bugs but they must be submitted in this mailing
list instead.

At present I'm only skilled in scripting, but I hope one day to become
able to edit the source code too. If and when I succeed, I shall not
fail to contribute to this feature. Thanks for the proposal.
