True trailing stop for TS/EL

Does anyone in the know, have an idea how or if TS will ever get a true trailing stop feature in EL as opposed to macros?

I use a custom trail, which obviously has benefits over the traditional trails, but like all non macros, it's not an actual order sitting on the trade server.

I don't know why they don't simply use the code already featured in the matrix and make it available as a standard EL function.

I considered just giving up and learning macros, but I keep thinking that EL engineers will listen to feedback and make this available at some future update.
