Change thread dump location?

I'd like to create a patch allowing to change a location of a threaddump
when it's triggered by sending a signal. My understanding is that currently
there is no option to specify a custom path.
Is this a feature you would consider to accept & eventually merge? I'm
aware one could use eg. jstack to save the threaddump into an arbitrary
location, but this tooling is not always available as it's part of JDK and
not JRE.
