Hi, I would like to pass a Babel config function to babel register rather than an object configuration. I want to use the API functionality it provides. It seems from the source code of @babel/register that it is not supported.

Example proposed support usage in Nodejs environment:

const config = function(api) {
   return { preset: [], plugins: [] }
require(`@babel/register`) (config)


@babel/core version "7.3.4"
@babel/register version "7.0.0"
@babel/runtime version "7.3.4"
NodeJS v11.11.0
