I agree. One should leave that kind of things to aurorae. (it is much 
easier to put as many different button style there, while 
oxygen/nitrogen is all hard coded. This is not maintainable on the long 

In fact, I think 'almost' everybody agrees with that. Next commit to 
Nitrogen will probably have this option gone.
(unless strong objections).
