If you follow the ITS#3406 thread you'll notice that other issues are
arising about that.  I think it's unlikely.  In principle, since this can
be considered a bug rather than a feature, it could get fixed in 2.2
unlòess it requires too extensive changes.  I need to check how extensive
it is to backport the current fixes, and what's required to fix the index
issues, so I'd recommend no expectations shortly.
