Users can't vote in bugzilla, so you have no idea if it's only 1
person, or 90% of the users the ones who want some configuration.

And there's many things you can do if you realize people desperately
need more options; like enabling votes in bugzilla, a poll, an
ideatorrent, etc.

Or do you want to go ahead, assume people need more options, build a
list of possible ones, and ask in the survey which ones they prefer?
