[Shotwell] options for storage of rendered RAW files and/or batch rendering?

Firstly, i'm unsure of wheather i am even in the right place, and as
this is my first post (and am unsure of how to check older posts) am
unsure wheather this has been raised before even.
But my question is, is it possible in future versions to have the
option, somewhere in the preferences, of where rendered RAW files are
stored? I used to be a little annoyed that it did store those files in
the home directory when my collection was stored locally on the hdd.
But now, for a few reasons, my collection is on an external hdd, and
rendering in the new version is in-line which makes accessing and
rendering much slower than it needs to be.
For those that do use external drives, a feature like this could be
similar to imatch's offline caching of photo's (shotwell is what i
replaced imatch with). I am one that would copy the rendered JPG's
manually if i needed them and especially if they were in the same folder
hirachy as the library.
Also - another feature that would be handy is, again in preferences, the
option of batch rendering RAW or on-demand as the current version does.
I have always liked the batch proccessing of RAW files, especially on
first import from a fresh install, but i guess those with in-line
rendering would not have this problem.
I must say though, i do very much love Shotwell, and especially with
what i do the fact that it is non-destructive. A wonderful all-round tool..
