But why? I can actually create a lot more options if you just want
choices. There are a couple things torbutton just does automatically
(like making sure you never query google's safesearch for every url on
the fly), and some actions (like the web history+form history+login
history option) come bundled together as a single option.

Torbutton is already bordering on an obscene number of nobs.. There is
room for this one, I guess.. But if I do this, and split the history
options out into seperate settings, we're talking about at least 10
more options (6 more history, 1 more cache.. plus at least 3-4 more
others if you want *everything* to be an option). That is getting a
little ridiculous, and I'm running out of space for nobs. Is all this
really needed?
