I *think* the intent -- and what I'd like to see -- would be a "geek
mode" checkbox, with a second screen (or more) specifying exactly what
was being watched.  Going into geek mode would turn on whatever was
set in the second screen; coming back out would turn off all geeky
output but not forget those settings.
