With all due respect to Jeff, those seem like facile arguments.  After
all, if you extend that logic, why not remove -all- options and solve
the UI clutter problem once and for all.

this indeed would be a great ui, no need for options because the
defaults were chosen properly :)

several "designing the perfect ui" documents I've read say that more
options means bad ui, and that limiting the number of options makes a
better ui. this can be done by choosing more sane defaults (which by
popular opinion we seem to have done)

You should at least de-couple the desirability/usefulness of an option
with its presentation in the GUI, and address those issues separately.

there's already a feature request floating around for this option to
appear in some future version of evolution in bugzilla somewhere.

that said, you'll just have to wait.

there is no config option to change the behaviour back to 1.4

I'm curious why the behaviour was removed, instead of being made an
option. Any chance of having it added back in as a user-selected option?
