This is a good idea and may be implemented some day. In the mean time, the
focus is on creating machine parseable outputs so you culd use a different
frontend to generate exactly the type of report you want. Incidentally, the
work to make machine parseable output just happens to make it easier t
tweak the regular reports at user option; IOW, the overhead involved in
implementing your and any other suggestion along these lines will decrease
when we finish this.

Thanks for the feedback on this!
