FInding out if SObject is Chatter-enabled

 

I realize I can iterate through all objects in an organization, but this is very expensive (in terms of SOQL queries).

 

Is it on the roadmap to be able to query the SObject metadata to find out if an object is Chatter-enabled, and, if so, when can we expect to see it available?

 

This substantially affects some things I am working on...

I read this the other day, which I think nails it:

 

New isFeedEnabled Method for DescribeSObjectResult Returns true if Salesforce Chatter feeds are enabled for the object, false otherwise.

Along these lines it would also be awesome to have a SObject__Feed object.
