I think it would be sensible to control it per-working-copy, with a
checkout option. It might not be ideal for everyone's use cases, but it
would be sensible.

(I figured we had done that for the existing use-commit-times feature,
but apparently we made it a global client config option. Bleah. I need
to set up a system which waves a big red alarm in front of me whenever
anyone adds a new global client configuration option, so that I get a
chance to explain why it's a bad idea.)
