The source lines would be mostly static.. We wouldn't have to modify
Kconfig to add new "select" statements to are entries. People end up
having to send you patches which do something then modify the Kconfig
(or in some cases they don't send them to you which is worse) in order
to reduce conflicts. With this change they wouldn't need to do that.

True. It's a trade off , but we already have this for the other menu
options further down the Kconfig.
