I suspect there's no reason apart from that no-one has had the need
until now and accordingly no-one has coded this feature.
A PR would be very welcome! (after the upcoming outputs->c++ work lands)
In fact, I took a look at the Python code and found that it would be
probably possible to implement following the code for the number type, in a
few places in the processing code. I think the models provider may not need
Since I am not very proficient in c++, it will probably more efficient for
me to stick to somewhat awkward workarounds. But I will take a look.
