I could barely parse this, but I've found that many colleagues didn't
know about this configuration. And I don't see why anybody would not
want this. The minority that don't want this can search the interwebs
to find out how to disable the unwanted behavior, so the majority that
do want this don't have to enable it all the time (*if* they know
about it).
