Yes, of course. My point was that if you are "the embedded guy" (like
I often am) trying to turn something off, the tools show you what to
look at already. They are currently no help if the option does not
appear, as you say. So automatically selecting things that are
required for something is much better than hiding too much. At least
it is easy to find out why something is selected if you really want
to turn it off.
If more things worked as Linus suggests, I don't think the tools need
much in the way of improvement. It really is more about how they are
used as they are. That is not to say that tools improvements are not
always welcome, but the current tools seem to work pretty well.
