I've made a decision that we need to change this.  The current code is
not reliable enough and I will not stay with it.  So please stop
arguing against it.  Please either take a constructive approach to
this or leave the discussion to others.

Here's what I want it to do.  The code should show the user the
variable and value, and ask if it is ok.  If the user says it is ok,
the code should write something into .emacs saying that this
combination is ok.

There are many ways to store this data.  I'd like the people willing to
work constructively on the issue to pick the best way.

It happens occasionally that a safe variable becomes risky, but it's
extremely unlikely that a previously safe value will become dangerous
for the sake variable.
