Maybe, but what happens when we start doing changes for v3.0? As a user, I
don't and to figure out which are the new configurations that will turn v3.0
behavior on, I just want to be testing that mode, even if I'm not following Git
development closely. If I find something annoying with core.mode = next, I
report the problem to the mailing list, which is good, we want to know problems
with the backward-incompatible changes that will be introduced before it's too
late, don't we?

I'd be fine with having *both* a fine-tuned option to trigger each specific
behavior, and another one that turns all those fine-tuned options on that are
meant for v2.0.

Unfortunately, I don't see much interest from Git developers in either.
