Indeed - I did this for my local copy of ACID about a year ago. I ported my 
patch to BASE a few weeks back. Kevin basically liked it, but wanted to 
tweak it slightly to allow the location of the rules to be modified.

I guess it might show up in the next release.

I've attached my patch against 1.1.4, FWIW.
