Hi Guillaume,

Thanks for following up on this!

I collected all the known requirements on this here:

That integrates comments from Ben, SJ, Me and others.

When you get a chance, can you (or others) help clean up the 
specification section to say what this feature will do. Get as technical 
  as you like.

We will use that for test, documentation and for explaining the feature 
to users to get feedback during the beta/pre-release cycle.

Links to code repositories, other web pages or e-mail lists are OK too.

Don't hesitate to remove anything from the specification section which 
is N/A or wont be implemented.

You can also add to the requirements section. Its preferred that you 
don't remove from the requirements, but you can note in the 
specification that some requirements are not met. You can also ask that 
requirements be clarified or explained better.

Comments and questions welcome.

IMHO this is big value feature which will merit a top spot on the 9.1.0 
Release Notes if its working well by then!
