I disagree with 5, that's not a sensible or sustainable way to deal with
this kind of thing. At least not without some kind of coherent process.
Just throwing in single-issue checkboxes ad hoc is not the way to do
this - should we have fifty checkboxes for everything you can configure
users to be able to do or not able to do? If we're going to go down that
route, it needs to be a properly planned utility, something like
Mandriva's msec. Only, uh, probably better.
