Yes, that's true, but I have no idea how to make this clearer. My idea
is to have the simplified interface by default, so users with no
experience in SAGA/GRASS/etc can use the algorithms and not worry
about seeing things that sound strange to them...but I would like to
avoid confusing more advanced users who want to use the advanced
interface :-)


p.s. Reading the whole Processing documentation (where all this is
discussed) takes less than one hour...so wasting a few hours on this
should never happen.. But yeah, maybe I am being too optimistic about
people reading docs... :-)
