You mean the "make it a user preference" one? To me, the simplest compromise
is to simply tweak the existing dialog message from an "I'm sorry, Dave, I'm
afraid I can't do that" message to an OK/Cancel prompt, to which the only dev
response was to label it "fudging". Yes, it sort of is, but that's what
compromise is about, right?
But perhaps a better thing to remember is that when the devs refer to "safe"
and "unsafe" workflows, I think these are meant to be terms with precise
technical meanings and NOT a value judgement on whether the person is using
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
