Better auto stacking (merging)

I'd be happy if a plugin solved this, but when you bracket, quite often photos are shot right after each other, so they are often shot very closely together in time, and the Exposure Bias changes.For example, when I shoot HDR I might have a -1 EV, 0 EV, and +1 EV set of 3 photos or I might have -2 EV, -1 EV, 0 , 1 EV, and 2 EV. I'd love for there to be a way , in addition to setting a time interval (as Auto Stack does today) to also ask the Auto Stack to look at the Exposure Bias, and group photos that are shot in sequence AND with different Exposure Bias to be grouped into a stack as a Bracket set.Perhaps Auto Stacking today can be made to do this, but I don't think it could properly distinguish times when I happen to snap two or three shots quickly in succession vs a series of differing EV values. When the EV values are different with shots close together in time, you can be certain they are a bracketed set.
