It has huge educational value, which is why I think it's important
that LB can do it. ..or maybe not..

I disagree. Let user shoot self in foot. Maybe politely warn though.

My idea is that these tweaks are contained in a separate piece of
software. Maybe lbmenu. There's a certain point in letting LB stay LB
and just do a very safe, always known-working setup. Then add fancy
schmancy on top of that.

This is also important because we may like to have fallback use
different performance profiles. Easily done with tweaks in a payload.
