Feature request: control support extrusion speed separately

I just saved about 20 minutes off my current print by cranking the speed up to 300% during the first layer of the support material, (it's a mask, so lots of open volume underneath.)
I looked, but could not find, an option to turn up extrusion speed for just the support material.

Is there a reason that support material needs to be laid down with the same care as the actual model?

I do not know how I missed that. I LOOKED.

 

Well, the current print is about 4 hours in, and the savings would be about an hour, so not worth it this time.

Thank you.
