I agree it was a promising approach, but alas it was not working, had
not been working for a long time and no one intended to get it working
(if even possible). We cannot keep every experimental feature in the
code hoping for someone to fix it one day, the code clutter would be
immense... The code is still there in older versions for anyone interested.
