Tapping on the status bar of an iPad or iPhone app universally signals a scroll to the top gesture. This is a very useful shortcut but hard to implement currently. Please make app developers lives easier by providing some sort of notification of this event.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tap on status bar

Expected Results:

an NSNotification such as 'UIApplicationDidTapStatusBar'

a delegate callback applicationDidTapStatusBar:(UIApplication)application

Actual Results:

UIScrollView detects the tap somehow, which leads developers to hack solutions such as:

There are edge cases where the automatic UIScrollView detection does not work. Please allow developers more control
