No, you're not alone. I don't like programs that silently spread my
passwords in different files on my hard drive without me noticing. There
are ways to avoid this, but if I am just a little bit ignorant... I don't
see why changing a default would be bad. Scripts can hardly rely on this
config option set to a specific value, so it can't break compability. I am
actually +1 on changing the default. This also sends a signal that we are
taking security seriously.
