Ok, I see that argument. That may actually also be a good rule of
thumb for @load vs redef-an-option: if not setting the option would
still be visible to the user in some non-pleasant form, a script may
indeed be the better way (you may have such rules in your head already
anyway; but I'm still learning them in the new model :-).
