Firstly, I'd like to manifest my support for this feature.

Secondly, (even though this patch is obviously not complete, since it
still needs the actual macro) before it's done, don't forget to add a
ChangeLog entry with the commit.

Thirdly, you have a small typo in the commit message: "in[dt]ent".
