Add a message when posting to old questions with more than N answers

I've seen a moderator add a message showing:

This question already has 60+ answers. Therefore, please consider whether your answer is going to provide anything new. Please take a moment to review all the answers before posting.

I guess it would be nice to have something like this automated — even for fewer answers: I would suggest 7 (because of human-brain choice paralysis).

Is there any chance to get this implemented?

programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/1599/… I guess it works only for non-wiki questions, or maybe it's manually added moderator message - in that case I think it would be very useful to have something like that automated... –  Kamil Tomšík Apr 9 '11 at 12:55

This is something I add manually when an old(ish) question with lots of answers gets new ones. I wish I didn't have to, but there you go. –  ChrisF Apr 9 '11 at 13:23
    
How adding the suggestion here? meta.stackexchange.com/questions/86576/… –  Yi Jiang Apr 9 '11 at 14:17
    
@Arjan - that is true. I went back to double check and saw it was still getting answers - hence the locking. I'll sort it out. –  ChrisF Apr 9 '11 at 18:52

Maybe it could even explain how to search within a single question then. And maybe it can use the nice slide up warning right above the answer box, when that gets focus, just like for <100 rep answerers.
