Hi,
So apart from all of the comments received, I think it is hard to
understand what the problem is, what the front-end looks like etc.
Your commit message is 1 line only.

I do remember some of the challenges discussed before, but it would
describe the problem in the commit message in detail and then discuss
why this solution is fit.  Please read submitting-patches.rst
especially "2) Describe your changes".

thanks,

 - Joel
