This is not a Moodle core issue. This bug can be closed. Thank you.
U P S T R E A M I Z E D !
Many thanks, this is now available in all the repos (git & cvs).
somehow this issue was closed incorrectly when processing all the integrated issues this week. (sort of most voted and current in integration filters mix). Apologies for the confusion, reseting to previous status!
The original submitter of this issue has indicated that it is not a core bug. As a result I have closed it as not a bug.
