Providing end users with the *option* to choose PCI slots sounds like a
fine feature request for any management app.

Requiring all management apps to force end users to explicitly choose
PCI slots in order for slots to be stable is not so reasonable.

Think any installer's partitioning utility.  It will provide a default placement and try to hide it from you.  If you ask, it will let you place the partitions yourself.

The management app is the end user's agent.  When we push something there, we allow it to choose something, or push the decision further up to the user.
I have a truly marvellous patch that fixes the bug which this
signature is too narrow to contain.
