There has been a decision on advanced buttons many years ago (I think
2.0 time). Since it has been raised and discussed various times.
A few of the reasons:
- advanced button will always be clicked, resulting in always performing
extra steps (it is a bit more than 'user defined')
- increased complexity
- increased support+QA (e.g. focus-follow-mouse is partly broken atm, if
you show it by default it'll better work!)
- more translation work (damned lies counts gschema stuff differently)
- goes against 'should work by default'
and so on.
