I thought about that, and decided that I prefer two separate settings. In this 
way, the current setting name (finally "synth.midi-bank-select") is a clear 
hint that it doesn't try to offer anything else than the bank select mode. We 
can offer later a "midi.mode" setting, with broader meaning and of course 
more functionalities, that overrides the bank-select setting.
