Adding other Tuplet resolutions to Hydrogen

Hydrogen is a great drum machine. However, it seems to be missing a fundamental feature for creating rhythms, and that is the ability to add untriplet tuplets (quintuplet, septuplets, etc)Are there palns to add this much needed feature in the near future? Ideally, it would be great to allow the user freedom to specify what resolution of subdivision to use for any beat in any time signiture:

duplet (2)
triplet (3)
quadruplet (4)
quintuplet (5)
sextuplet (6)
septuplet (7)
octuplet (8)
nontuplet (9)

With some modications, it seems to me the complete family of usual tuplets could be added to drop down resolution menu in the Hyrdrogen GUI. For example, tuplets could be displayed as ratios (e.g., 3:2, 4:3, 5:4, 7:4,).

Here is a good overview of the best practrice for denoting tuplets in standard notation, which may stimulate ideas for hydrogen's pattern-based sequencer:
