It's not being back-patched. That code has been there for years, with
only one complaint that I'm aware of. The complaint is a valid one
though, which is why I think we should add the option for 1.12.

Which would do what - override the default for that window only, or
control the default as well? I prefer the former, but some of the
other options are stored for all future query windows, so there may be
some inconsistency there.
