I believe it should be a customizable option. Reason: I want to customize that
option and turn it off; and I'd much rather use customize-option to do it than
add Lisp code to my .emacs (which I almost never have to do for variables, so
I don't see why this should be a special case).

I don't think we need to wait to hear a ruckus before we offer people a way to
return to the Emacs-they-know-and-love. So, would someone please make this
variable into a customizable option? I can do so by the weekend if no one else
gets to it.
