It's not the idea I found funny, it's that you thought it would be a quick easy change to a script, believe me it wouldn't.
The editor and game engine are actually two pieces of software that work together (you can see this in task manager when you run a test, you will see two different processes), adding something like that would be quite a big job.
I found it amusing because I see it a lot, where people make suggestions and because theyre not coders just assume it's a few lines of code to change, when in truth it could be weeks or months of work. It's kind of an in joke with game Devs and coders.
