Being subjectively useful to one person is not the bar for making something public.

If you want to push this forward, please go through the proposal process ( and file a new bug with a more substantive proposal and try to quantify the benefit and that it outweighs the costs of extra API bloat & docs. Approximately how many existing users in the Github corpus would benefit? Which existing bugs would this fix? What features would this enable?

Anything more than "is very useful [to me] therefore it should be public".

I'm going to close this for now, but feel free to reply or file a new issue if you collect more data.
