Based on the discussions I saw on IRC, the idea is that the code is
overcomplicated in trying to offer this feature as it is now. But I
think the _general_ lean of opinion is "since people definitely seem to
like the configurability, don't break it unless the complicated code
turns out to be problematic" I think.
