As a rule of thumb I like to have a clean interface with the minimum of
options. If people are having to tweak things to get what they want then
we are probably giving them the wrong thing in the first place.

Generalising the code is nice, but any patch has to be balanced against
the testing the current code has received. A lot of the code is quite,
quite, dodgy and cleaning it up is a no-brainer. Other times it isn't so
