Comment 1 cohoe 2012-08-09 09:07:43 EDT
This also affects library/API 0.9.13
Comment 2 Dave Allan 2012-08-09 10:02:32 EDT
I think your best bet for getting this functionality is to submit patches upstream, and I'm sure people will work with you to get them accepted.
Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2016-03-23 18:35:52 EDT
Agreed with dave, tracking this in bugzilla isn't going to generate any results. There's many unimplemented APIs across the drivers. Closing as DEFERRED; someone just needs to provide a patch
