Ok, it's decided, then.  Cool.

There are two settings of the red-pill mode that require a restart of
the AM to take effect.  They would need to be fixed.  Any
volunteers? :-)

    * Always check for updates

    Activating this setting removes the refresh button from the toolbar
    and instead performs a "Checking for updates" operation everytime
    you switch to the "Browse installable applications" or "Check for
    updates" view. This settings was added for some quick UI
    experiments, but we kept it afterward.

I think we can just remove this setting.  It's pretty useless.

    * Ignore packages from wrong domain

    Usually, a package from a wrong domain will be completely ignored by
    the Application manager. Deactivating this setting will not ignore
    these packages. However, When actually installing a package from a
    wrong domain, a warning message will still be displayed and you need
    to confirm that installation should proceed.

The problem here is that the value of this setting is communicated to
the "apt-worker" backend process only once during startup.  It's useful
to keep it, I'd say.
