Yes, that's the reason for the new user option -- I want
to ensure that people can retain the behaviour they're
used to.  Personally I never need to justify text; but if
there are people who do so very regularly, it's entirely
possible that they're using the M-<n> style of numeric
prefix, simply because it's slightly easier to type that
then to have to switch modifier keys after typing C-u.

Furthermore, (info "(emacs) Fill Commands") currently
says: "A numeric argument to ‘M-q’ tells it to "justify"
the text as well as filling it" -- the "numeric" detail
is really unnecessary, but it did give me even more reason
to ensure that this behaviour could be retained.
