I think it's mostly unsupported due to trickiness of implementation
(or cowardice) rather than by design decision. Or at least something
scared me off when I looked into it a few years ago . Don't
remember the details, though I likely didn't give it more than a day
or two of thought/effort, so maybe don't let that deter you if you had
plans to look into it.
