Default A granular stretch mode with grain size automation in real-time

It would be really awesome for sound design if we had a granular stretch mode that would allow us to automate the grain size with a take envelope from 1-1000 ms.
The closest thing that i've found is the Simple Windowed (fast) mode, where we can change the window size from the dropdown menu, but it would be much more useful if we could also automate the window size with a take envelope in real-time.

Benefits: Precise control of the grain size across the length of the sample when we stretch drums or any other audio, which could make the audio sound smoother (depending on the stretch length of the item) and/or produce stutter like fx.

EDIT: Here are some sound examples by processing an audio with a granular sampler and changing the grain size in real-time.

Please devs this would be extemely useful for sound design. Is it so hard to assign a take envelope to the window size of the Simple Windowed (fast) mode ?

That's the way i'm dealing with it as well for the moment. But it wouldn't hurt anyone to have this natively as well since the algorythm is already there. This kind of synthesis is very important for sound design and having it on the take together with the other take envelopes such as pitch volume and panning, it would enhance users sound design.
One good example is when you 're dealing with drums, when you chop small samples and you want to stretch them in order to sound exactly as you want with the grain size.
For this scenario is better to have it on the take rather than importing to your vst each small sample everytime.And of course it's not only for drums but any sound you want. Ableton has it as well in some of their stretch algorythms, why not Reaper as well?
