a quick update:

I've prepared a PR with a working prototype in
https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/4629, I need some feed-back and some
help, expecially UX/UI about if we want it as a dockable dialog too (and
how to make it user-configurable).

Feed-back welcome (but please keep it limited in scope to phase 1).
