Well, sure, but as you said:

We have that; it's just that the knob is $daily_status_disks_df_flags,
and it's in /etc/defaults/periodic.conf (along with the rest of the
periodic config stuff).  I s'pose it could be "easier" if we had some
graphical tool or something to manage periodic.conf, but we don't
really have any widespread ones for rc.conf either.
