@jmay and @fletch I sent Elliot a support request via email on Feb 14 and heard back from him the next day.
Elliot indicated he continues to be interested in implementing this feature, but needs to do additional research. His primary concern is license keys ending up accidentally checked into public GitHub repositories, a valid concern.
He also said that once he’d made a decision on whether or not to implement this he’d reply directly on this topic.
