This is a non-starter: cutting the link between the two is not really up
for negotiation, it's an important part of keeping the interface simple.

That is: it's OK to have a custom var deciding whether e-i-m swaps RET
and LF, but by default that custom var should be enabled.

Analyze the code from a suspicious point of view, like you do for e-i-m,
and you'll soon find ways.  Or use your memory of problems we've had.

I'd be very surprised if it doesn't change functionality: saying it
doesn't is not sufficient.
