I won't put it in there.  Once you open the door to that, then you have
to answer questions about "so how do I change these settings?" and then
you're explaining half of the edit-key interface.  You have to draw the
line somewhere.

I draw it at explaining politely and reasonably that the defaults are
safe for the overwhelming majority of users and there's no need to
change them.
