Because I have all that code written and sitting there in tweak-tool
and have held off enabling/presenting it for fear of stepping on the
toes of e.g.o and confusing everyone.

If you want me to put that into tweak-tool just ask.

BTW; this gets a bit messier if now we ship classic mode as a
collection of system-wide (i.e. package manager installed) extensions
instead of the user-only extensions aka e.g.o.
