why not export c:i/1?

I find myself wanting to patch c.erl in orde to export the existing function i(Pids).

We have an improved version of the jungerl contrib 'proc_reg', which among 
other things offers a filter front-end to the i() function (you choose to include 
or exlude registered processes based on pattern matching). The bottom line
is that I want to be able to call i(Pids) using a sub-set of all pids in the 

This ought to be a reasonably useful function in large systems, and 
wouldn't add much in terms of support cost.

I won't bother sending a patch, since it's a trivial change.
