Then again, it's only by enabling it by default that we'll get a clear
picture of which changes are annoyances are which aren't.

So I'd start by changing the default on `master` and after a month or
so, collect feedback to decide how to go about adding it: either by just
changing the behavior willy-nilly, or introduce it but add an option to
revert to the old behavior, or leave the default unchanged but add an
option to get the new behavior, ...
