--bare-bones seems ok.  But things like menus are not "frills", and we
don't want to spread that impression.  I don't want to get bug reports
from people that did not bother using the help menu or tutorial
announced on the splash screen because they decided from the manual
page that they were not the type of person interested in frills.
