P.S. Actually, one of the serious problems in software design is
understanding when low-level stuff is OK to expose, and what counts
for low-level. Historically free software developers solved this in
three ways:

1) dump everything into one huge dialog and let the geekest survive (FAIL)
2) put everything extra under "Advanced" tab and let users pick their
own settings (FAIL)
2) get rid of extra settings, streamline defaults (FAIL)

The 3rd should actually be WIN, was it not for the screaming majority of geeks.
