FYI: That code is poorly tested (almost not), therefore I expect it not to
work and have disabled it by default. I have only added it to the snapshot to
give somebody besides me to debug/test it, because my personal time
restrictions currently do not allow me to test/debug it. Sorry if this might
cause confusion.
