I was against it because I don't see it as discoverable or self documenting.
Looking at the config file
COMPRESS= [0,1,2,3] dosen't mean much.
I suppose if you could abstract that to all symbolics such that
Then that would be better.
I really don't like how vague our config options are. I am IMed by
people all the time asking me what config option such and such does.
I have to go grep through the code to figure it all out since I can't
keep them straight myself.
If we could just make those option _say_ what they are doing then its
much better off in the long run. Much more discoverable
So if we can make =[foo,man,chu] really mean something and be
discoverable then I'm all for it.
