I can find no mention of this option or action in any announcement: could you
please ensure that new options added do not change existing behaviour as far as
possible, or are clearly documented in the ANNOUNCEMENT and NEWS as breaking
compatibility, and perhaps add a setting for this option at the bottom of the
Options/Terminal dialogue, for those users who wish to enable it.
I probably blocked it in my firewall on first use, so you might also want to
warn users that they could get a firewall prompt.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
