I very much appreciate Alberto's work in implementing this, but would
like to test the decision against our commitment to ease of use. I think
enabling or disabling this feature in X is an expert option. I think we
can choose to enable it, or disable it, and of course we can allow
experts to change that through a config file or through a rebuild, but
this capability *should not* be exposed to end-users as a GUI option. It
will create more confusion than it will solve.
