Description

Thread here.

I would like to be able to globally disable startupitem.autostart (with a conf setting) just to protect against the possibility that someone has it enabled for something that gets installed as a dependency that I don't actually want running [it would be cool if the implementation of the global 'off' switch for this automatically added a note (or at least a ui_msg) that says what would have been run, or what needs to be run to 'complete' the install].

As I mentioned in the thread, I'll try to work on a patch for this, but I'm fairly busy currently. If someone else wants to pick this up, that would be cool :)
