This sounds like something that would irritate me enough to implement
a long option/rcfile option to be able to override the Pico behavior
as it does seem strange.  I think I've run into it all of once or
twice in 15 years.  Surely others have opinions here however; whether
you were to add this once 2.5 opens is entirely up to you Benno, based
I assume on who else chimes in and how passionately you feel about
this behavior.
