Depth of field Program mode?

Has anyone seen discussions or interest in whether a "depth of field" Program mode might be implemented?

Idea being, you dial in your desired depth of field (say 10cm for example to get most of face in focus), and the camera adjusts aperture to achieve that (or as close as it can), given that it knows the subject distance.  Shutter speed automatically set as normal to get metering.

Personally, I'd find this worthwhile because you're not always in control of subject distance, and sometimes the dof gets too narrow for comfort as you get closer, and you might not have time or remember to change aperture.
