The only compromise I can think of is putting it as a hidden option 
somewhere but then putting enough warnings in it to stop people adding 
it without thinking gets messy.  It won't go into cvsnt as unless Arthur 
puts it in since I don't deal with the cvsnt core code any more.

Probably best on cvsnt-dev.  Building is a bit of a challenge (it's a 
big package with lots of dependencies) but everything is available to do it.
