	I tend to agree that removing pointless options, *particularly* from
the user-interface is an unmitigated good ;-)

	What I'd really like to see is an "about:config" style UI (that doesn't
suck ;-) that lets people see & edit all of the obscure tweakables to
their heart's content: at least for those tweakables that make at least
some sense to some small population of users.
