It's really "less testing of what will eventually be released
and more testers, vs. more testing of what will be eventually
released and less testers".  It's a saddle curve.

Please see the patches I just posted; I think they will permit
everyone to "be happy" by letting you add knobs that do what
you want to do, set defaults, and then permit people to opt out
of those defaults, without having to worry that your default
settings will sneak up on them and (e.g.) delete perl out from
under them.
