OCR support for ES Mapper attachments plugin

Hi there,
The following case was reopened due to my request (see below).
Could someone provide an update about the subject?

Recent Apache Tika (http://tika.apache.org/1.7/index.html) and up is now supporting OCR which depends on the pre-installation of Tesseract (https://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr).
According to what I checked elasticsearch Mapper Attachments (https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch-mapper-attachments#mapper-attachments-type-for-elasticsearch) is supporting the same Tika library as mentioned above.
So, is it just exposing the API's??
Would love to hear what do you guys think as this is a really cool feature!
