Actually Eric very recently documented how to adjust early defaults:;a=commit;h=befa5273

Paul had used that in another update to gnulib:;a=commit;h=3386f398
If that was further adjusted to document the default,
then we could adjust coreutils to using this mechanism.

It's debatable whether we need to do this before this release,
but documenting of the default can happen in gnulib anyway
as we'll adjust coreutils (the only current user) on the
next gnulib update.
