Does anybody know if there any plans to add a "threading tool" to SolidWorks?

 

Currently, when I need to model threads, I use a helix for the path and a "cutting tool" sketch for the profile.

 

While this is not TOO much work (it's far from an insignificant amount of work, though), I feel that this could be automated in the code for both internal and external threads.

 

Thoughts?
