This is not a hill I'm going to die on. However, I just think we're talking about an extreme fraction of users who need to even use the feature so why subject real estate, even in advanced options. This will certainly be the least used advanced option.

It isn't merely about user friendly. It's about use necessary. I just don't see the vast majority of apps needing such a control, therefore there is no sacrificed function.
