I don't agree with this principle.  I like a tool that behaves sanely
with little work and that is flexible enough to do hard things when
that's needed.  Neither of those attributes implies configurability,
except in those unfortunate cases where "behaving sanely with little
work on the user's part" has to involve a different behavior from
person to person.

When people disagree about sane defaults, that's a sign that we didn't
understand the problem well.  Often more thinking can lead to a
simpler answer.
