Lightroom Classic, Lightroom Ecosystem & Camera Raw: Ability to do focus stacking

Firmware Version 4.0 for the Olympus E-M1 has just come out with in-camera focus stacking. Actually this is limited to a maximum 8 shot focus bracket. However, if one is happy to do the focus stacking in PP, the camera will do up to a 99 shot focus bracket. No it is not a typo, I mean 99 as in 1 less than a hundred. Photoshop and a myriad other third party apps will do that or so I'm told. So, isn't it time to have focus stacking in LR? I have no desire to stuff around with two photographic apps. So let's make a noise to get focus stacking into LR proper!Regards,Bob Single Shot, 120mm f5.6 Focus Stacking of 150 shots, 120mm f5/6PS: Note, I've amended my comments above from earlier today.

I am surprised and terribly disappointed that we still don't have focus stacking in LR. 90% of my PS usage is for this purpose. Doing everything in LR is a big plus.

I refer the honorable gentleman to my previous statement: BOOM! Helicon Focus works great as a LR plugin, and is 10X faster than Photoshop.
