FWIW, I do not think it was so much rejected as that I had initially
planned to implement it, then decided against it. Mostly because I
wanted to actually get annoyed with each piece of advice before
disabling it. Because sometimes the right answer is actually "make the
advice better".

But I do not mind somebody adding it if it is a burning desire.
