Traditionally we've not had too much issue just saying that there is a
flag to enable the feature, and if one does not want the feature they
should not specify the flag. Otherwise like you say we either need to
use flag=yes/flag=no, the lower case/capital letter combo for
enable/disable or the +flag -flag nomenclature, neither of which is
too palatable given how many flags nano supports.

I think we need to consider what view mode really means since it's not
entirely clear to me anymore (not that it ever was). Changing it so
that it could be turned on and off per buffer would enable us to do
other things as well, like adding the vi movement sequences for those
who are really interested in having that when view mode is on.

Wow that looks amazingly clean, I'll have to look at it more closely
when I get home.
