Marlin 2.0 filament diammeter

Has anyone enabled and used a filament diammeter sensor on their printer? I see its a feature in marlin 2.0 and was thinking how would it be implemented and could it replace the filament runout sensor?

There was a post made here yesterday: (How precise is your filament really?) which addressed this exact issue. Watch the video. The guy in it made 3 diameter sensors using a spring loaded magnet and a hall-effect sensor. He claims it can be made for under $10.

True, but my question is more so if anyone actually has a sensor set up and are useing the marlin feature to take the filament data while 3d printing.

To me it seems neat but could provide a better tool for both measuring your filament and preforming a runout function.
