I actually do not agree.  If the knob gives enough benefit, the
users will learn about it viva voce, and in a few more releases
we'll hear "enough users complain that they have to turn it on,
let's make it the default".  If that does not happen, the knob
does not deserve to be turned on in the first place.

That's a good philosophy. I'll keep it in mind.
Having said that, I won't be commenting on this shiny new toy before
the final.  I want to see more people help tying the loose ends and
give it final varnish to the upcoming release, as it seems to have
become rockier and larger release than we originally anticipated.

Yeah, no rush on this one. I just wanted to get some initial feedback about the idea.

Thanks,
