Network Drive EP Library Storage

I see there was speak of EP supporting Network files back in May. However not much has been said since.

Can anyone shed any light on whether this is likely to be worked on for the next release of EP? My Library is stored on a Network mapped drive, for backup & multi PC download workflows etc. However, it would be ideal to have this as my main location for the files. So I don’t have to have a sync program to keep them on local C:/

I have done some testing with a SQLite db editor etc. Not ideal.
