Thanks.

I am aware of that: http://forums.livecode.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=27829

I am fairly handy at mucking around with (and mucking up) components of 
the IDE.

However there are lots of end-users, and lots more potential end-users 
(especially if I get
my wicked way and get my book out to push Livecode as an authoring 
environment for teachers)
who either don't know how to do that sort of thing, or don't have the 
time and/or motivation to
learn that. For them a settings pane in the IDE Preferences would be 
very good indeed.
