I suppose that I have a stronger inclination to maintain
existing behavior as much as possible.  Even if there's one
person out there who relies on that behavior, it's been
there for a long time and I see no compelling reason to
change it.  Especially when there's a simple alternative
that many of us already use.

Unless there's objection, I'll look into changing the default
configuration to enable masquerading.  (But not until next week,
at least.)
