Why is TCP_NODELAY settable only on the subscriber side in roscpp, but only the publisher side in rospy? [closed]

I just noticed this while looking into some issues with latency. Just curious why this is the case, and whether there are plans to change it (the roscpp page suggests that setting this on the publisher might be an option in the future).

Is there a reason this cannot be done? I ask because it would be nice to test the TCP_NODELAY option from a Python node, e.g. rostopic.

It cannot be done because no one has added that feature to rospy.
