Like I indicated, look beyond yourself a bit. It is silly to suggest
that autoconfiguration doesn't help the majority of users.

This is sort of corner case but even then, I have had to move struggle
in the past to setup things when a new monitor was connected or when I
had to plug my hard disk to someone else's system to copy content.

I am sure, you understand that autoconfiguration isn't designed just for
this particular usage but for the general users who don't want to
configure things manually on a new installation.

Changes are (primarily) being made upstream. Downstream users can
document and communicate changes which we have.
