Hi Greg,

That would be a great feature to have - I am looking for the same.

Unfortunately, I think it is not possible right now (the '<name>'
property does something else) and I don't know to do it myself ...

I'll be trying though :)

So if someone on this list reads this and knows an answer - you'll have
2 thankfull listeners ...

Regards, Dirk
