One problem with having a switch that does more than asked for is that
it might not get you the adoption you want. Often when deployed web
sites are already complicated it's easier to add something that
changes a single thing than add something that changes a bunch, some
of which you might not need.

Would love to see more ideas though, either here or in a new thread.
