Proposal for Trinity Defaults for 3.5.13 (brainstorm)

  I have been through the kcontrol settings looking at default setting that
could be changed in 3.5.13 to reduce the number of settings that would need to
be changed on each new install (at least for me). The idea is to make Trinity
better right out-of-the-box.

  I know everybody has different 'preferences' and this isn't intended to try
and dictate default settings by any stretch, but after numerous installs, it is
clear that the current defaults would benefit from a few changes. The goal is
the come up with a default set that minimizes the number of changes that the
average user would normally make and to give Trinity the good clean default
looks and behavior

  I have taken the time to create a web page to collect input and give the
developers a handy reference to look at the next time they are in the defaults
section of the code. Check it out and add your comments here:

  I've taken a first cut and coming up with foswiki formatting that makes it
readable (I'm not sure I succeeded). If you have a better idea for
distinguishing kcontrol -> entry -> tab (1,2..) and making it more readable,
feel free to have at it.
