Well, no.  I'm saying that people are being far too trigger happy with
it and that if someone wants to add a mechanism for turning it on they
need to deal with the fact that it currntly warns every time it does
anything but there are some resonable use cases, especially on very old

The main thing here is to avoid these driver specific bodges that people
keep churning out again and again, it's quite depressing really.
