I couldn't believe something this simple took so long to implement.
For some time I thought my XBMC configuration was broken, but it was actually "working as intended". The wife approval factor rating really drops when it comes to little things like this.
Fortunately, a clever chap called ScudLee made a patch for it and it's been integrated into XBMC v12 (Frodo).
At time of writing, v12 is current on RC3, so grab it and check it out!

Definitely taking the opportunity to upgrade to Frodo when it's finally finished.
