No. I have only post the question whether this feature, right or wrong as it
can be, could be interesting in Fedora, as other distro have done elsewhere.
Just to to hold a discussion, if there was interest in the functionality. I
think it is better to open a debate  about a feature before seeing what is
the best implementation for it, if exists at all or it is better to develop
it from scratch.
