Oh god, an unbreak-my-app option? Havoc Pennington has a nice
rant about the scourge of free software: papering over problems
with preferences. Unfortunately, i can't find it so i can't
include it.

This is a problem. I don't want to see problems addressed in
conditional code only executed if the myriad unbreak-my-app
options are flipped on. Unfortunately, i seem to be in the
minority. It shouldn't surprise me. We've been losing control
over our home directories for years now.
