There are currently no plans to add support for additional types.  The 
reason is mainly
no funding  which means it gets low priority. We will probably get 
around to it some time but
if you are really interested in seeing it supported the most effective 
way would be a patch-suggestion with
test cases sent to the erlang-patches mailing list.
