Yeah I thought about that, but to be honest the only reason to have this
is pure convenience - the more typing required the less convenient it is.
I never, ever set the DOS version. It's always either win9x vs win2k for
me, so saving a few characters seemed worth it.

But, I can change it if really wanted. Alexandre?
