thank you for your interest.

At this point it is not possible. But:

Generally I'm not sure if this kind of on-the-fly reconfiguration that
is not backed by config change is the direction we want to go. If there
is a specific usecase I'm surely interested in hearing about it as...
this gives valuable input to exactly this decision.

I would love to see a ticket about this. Do you want to open one?:

Otherwise I would open one but I think if you open it you can include a
bit more background story directly.

With best regards,
