Open all doors via fob?

    With the latest update double clicking the fob opens the front door. I have found this to be arguably worthless considering the door already opens when I walk up to it.

    What I wish for is the possibility to open the passenger door with the fob, since it doesn't use its sensors to open (I imagine there would be too many false positives in single occupant situations).

    Going further, why not allow a few options accessible in the settings?
    1. Double click opens the driver door. Current mode.
    2. Double click opens the passenger door. Previously unavailable utility from remote.
    3. Double click opens all doors: driver passenger, falcon, (trunk?). Nice wow factor.
    I sent that feature request via the "bug report" voice command. I'm wondering if there's another better way to get to Tesla engineers. I'm also curious if there are other ideas out there for a double click, or other ways to open all or passenger door. Do more people want to make the same request themselves for strength in numbers? Or is it a bad idea?
