True. It is not a good idea to come up with a lot of options to
make it as much configurable as possible. But hiding options just
to not ask too much of the users is not a way to go as well. Here
it's about options that are variants of each other and in principle
already are within the code. It's a bit like supporting ascending
but not descending sort order, if they were left out.

It's a detail and maybe not the time to discuss on it too much,
but it should be kept in mind.
