Ahh.. That makes more sense, then ;)

Oh, adding an option is really easy.  Just look at
src/app-utils/prefs.scm and add a new one there. :)

Actually, yes..  We've long-since passed the -user threshold.  I've
cc'd -devel, so feel free to remove -user when you reply and we can
continue this on -devel.

I still believe that you should file a bug report and attach your
patch there -- that way we wont forget about it and we'll have a
searchable record for others to look at.  Sending patches to -devel
(or even -patches) works but can sometimes get lost.
