I agree, although I think it should be possible to specify both on the
same command line. At that point however the user would know what they
did, so they should be able to undo it appropriately.
I also don't want to bikeshed this to death. I imagine that once the
feature is stable that users will just twiddle it once and then leave it
alone, or it will be set at install time and then not twiddled at all. :)
