Ok, but we've repeatedly warned users *not* to do that. If you, despite
all warnings still do that, I don't see any reason to make it easier for
you to do it.
If you want to do something that's dangerous and not recommended, it
*should* be hard to do and the UI should do everything to discourage you
from continuing doing it.
We won't prevent you from doing it, but we definitely won't help you do it.
