My notion is that the _set information should move from being a boolean to
recording the "distance" of the option that set some field from that field
(it might be set by an option that directly corresponds to the field, or
by one indirectly implying it, or a default if no relevant option is given
at all). Distance is in the sense of appendix 1 of
This is explicitly not a detailed design; anyone implementing it would
need to flesh out the details.
