Preference Bloat

	I notice that we have a lot of preferences, now (User Settings).

	Some of them will never be used by 90% of users. Some of them will be
used more frequently.

	I don't want the Preferences page to start looking like our old
Parameters page did.

	Just be careful about adding new Preferences. Just because we can,
doesn't mean we should.

	Also, perhaps some of them should ship as disabled by default, to clean
up the default UI.

Competent, Friendly Bugzilla Services. And Everything Else, too.
