How to specify custom support settings only for one spot on a model

I have a model that I'm preparing where I want to adjust the support pattern spacing in one spot. Specifically, I want to try the technique of bridging from supports w/o interface layers and for most of the span I want to specify something large like 1-2cm support pattern spacing. But on the end I want to tighten the support spacing up to better catch the overhanging end and some smaller supported features on the end. (As a last resort, turn on the interface layer on the end.)

I can't seem to find any support settings using part modifiers, nor any settings overrides available for support enforcers. Am I not looking in the right place, or do I have a feature request to submit over on GitHub?

I sort of kluged my desired effect by using multiple support enforcers, but I wish there was a more elegant way to do this...

I seem to recall bumping into this myself: so please do post a feature request.

It is always wise to get more than one opinion...
