It will definitely be in 0.7.0 (which will be the next stable version made 
from the current master branch), but I'm not sure if we should put it into 
0.6.0 (the upcoming stable one based on 0.5.6 which we are testing at the 
moment). It might break some plugins out there if we change the initialization 

What do you think ?

1) You can't win.
2) You can't break even.
3) You can't leave the game.
