Change first, complain later?  Happens often enough and the ensuing
complaints are rarely supportive of the approach.

Most meaningful polls are for one-line changes, since polls make sense
only when there are incompatible viable options, and Emacs can usually
be made to support either at the user's choice.  Then all that remains
is the choice of a meaningful default.

Which is typically selected from the provided options with a single
setting, more often than not effected by a single line.
