I did not anticipate that anybody would want to mess with these. Of
course, I should have anticipated that you would. So I have to
decide whether that is a good enough reason to put it in, since
there are alternatives, as Norbert explained.  I do not want to
overload users with rarely-used options.

If anybody else on this list thinks these options should be
included, please speak up.
