Yes, I do actually. It's the push vs. pull model; seeing what I want
and adjusting the config takes effort. Also, at least for smaller
networks, it's actually not a problem; and I'm hoping we'll be getting
plenty of those in the future as well.

I like that! It's short and even better than the option I suggested
because one can start tweaking right there. And I'm fine leaving it
commented out. I'll add that.
