I remember reading about experimental implementations of this at least 10 years ago. The big problem is keeping the small holes open, with insects impingment at low altitudes being the biggest problem (think bugs on the windshield). The solution at the time was to pump a water/detergent mix out of the holes during takeoff and landing. Corrosion closing up the holes was also a problem.
