    i hadn't actually considered *that* possibility, but the idea is sort
    of what i had in mind -- a clear, top-level setting that, in one swell
    foop, will change what's available throughout the tree. i think
    that's the most intuitively clear way to do it.


    p.s. mostly, i just don't think labelling that selection with the
    word "EMBEDDED" makes a lot of sense. who's to say that any given
    feature should be de-selectable only on an embedded system?
