And if that had been suggested three option tabs back?
IMHO a blanket ban on new options (especially where functionality is being
changed) is as wrong headed as adding options recklessly.
Why not just try for a reasonable consensus as at present?
TSVN is balancing this particular tightrope well, why change what works.
Add a new option if, and only if, a meaningful benefit results.
