Tree climb on manual merge

Any functionality to help merge individuals is very welcome to me and should be to other users. I believe this as after almost 30 years of working with computer genealogy I know individuals who are the same but have resulted from differing research are inevitable.
I wasn't aware that a competitor had this functionality but such an approach seems perfectly logical and should be programmed. If the human was to merge a father he/she would naturally look at the corresponding descendants of each so Rootsmagic should do the same as a priority.
Recently I have been working to merge many marriage events and Duplicate Search merge does not always catch the spouse as an obvious "are these the same person" and it should, otherwise duplication and loss of database integrity results.
Keeping ones customers and their important views at a distance is never a good approach

Confirming this is on the enhancement request list.
