Thunar: double click on 'Name' resizer to resize width automatically

Hi XFCEers,

In Thunar list view if one or more filenames (Name column) overflows 
(i.e. is longer than the set column size and '...' is added) or is 
longer than needed (i.e. Name column visually longer than the longest 
filename), is it possible to have the column width resized ('snapped') 
to the longest filename by double clicking on the 'resizer' vertical 
line between the Name and Size columns?

This kind of behaviour seems to actually work for the Size and Type fields.

Any hint welcome.
