REQUEST: SPELL_AURA_APPLIED/REMOVED to show 'who'

Here goes...

The new 2.4 combat log events, SPELL_AURA_APPLIED and SPELL_AURA_REMOVED would benefit greatly from having the src* fields contain data about the player/mob that applied the aura that is fading or has been applied.

Current...

5/11 20:51:24.267 SPELL_AURA_APPLIED,0x0000000000000000,nil,0x80000000,0xF1300059A4000090,"Gurtogg Bloodboil",0x8010a48,27216,"Corruption",0x20,DEBUFF
5/11 20:51:41.938 SPELL_AURA_REMOVED,0x0000000000000000,nil,0x80000000,0xF1300059A4000090,"Gurtogg Bloodboil",0x8010a48,27216,"Corruption",0x20,DEBUFF

Proposed...

5/11 20:51:24.267 SPELL_AURA_APPLIED,0x0000000001AE6C10,"Footrot",0x511,0xF1300059A4000090,"Gurtogg Bloodboil",0x8010a48,27216,"Corruption",0x20,DEBUFF
5/11 20:51:41.938 SPELL_AURA_REMOVED,0x0000000001AE6C10,"Footrot",0x511,0xF1300059A4000090,"Gurtogg Bloodboil",0x8010a48,27216,"Corruption",0x20,DEBUFF

The rationale is that it would make it much simpler and less taxing on the client for the construction of addons that monitor the debuffs on mobs.

EDIT: This request is primarily for those spells where it is 100% unambiguous to deduce. In my example, I used Corruption. I would NOT expect this to work for things such as the Tree of Life aura, or Paladin auras.
