Heh, it's easy done.
I should add, I'm not just getting these things entirely out of my head, I have been doing the rounds of reading requests for other software, and if it seems logical and doable, I'll add it in. The reported-posts-in-profile came from a 2 year old topic on sm.org, the merge came from - hmmm - seeing it discussed on XF as being in 1.2.
The best bit, I don't even see this as bloat even if it's a feature that most people won't ever use. I can think of a bunch of big ticket features that could easily be bloat but are critical for some (I'm thinking arcade and the like)... but tools for the job like this actually seems not-like-bloat to me. So I'm actually really happy about adding stuff like this. Because it's 'bloat' right up until you actually need it.
Of course if anyone has any ideas about similar tools they'd like to see, let me know and if I can make it happen without being crappy, lame or fugly, I'll see what I can do ;)
