This sounds too uninteresting for most users.

It is?  In any case, I'd prefer announcing it when the whole thing is
ready, ...

... and avoid pre-announcements for future features.

So far there were no announcements about anything in `unstable', and I
like to keep it out of the very public announcements.  (Unrelated to
posting about it privately as a process to consider moving things

[Also, I think that it's probably time to add some toplevel `debug'
collection with such utilities -- I've recently added `unstable/time'
which should be there too, as well as cleaned-up versions of the debug
file there.]
