In general those are the generic automatically generated module GUIs so
fancy tricks are out. However we could move display= to the Selection tab
for a bit more visibility I guess. Although it's stretching the definition

or even make it Required=YES so it gets on the first tab (I don't like
abusing that if we can help it, but in this case you might be able to
make a case that display= something should always be set).
