I'm not sure if a lot of urser would even notice the difference.

I don't see what is the problem. We haven't had the need for push.default =
simplewarning, have we? If you want the warning, you don't change anything, if
you want to specify something, you already know what you are doing.

Maybe, but would you actually use that option?

Maybe, but I don't think many users would use either mode, and that's good.

OK, but that seems to mean you don't need core.mode = next-warn either. I'm not
against adding such a mode, but I would like to hear about _somebody_ that
would like to actually use it. I don't like to program for ghosts.

Cheers.
