Unfortunately, I might not have enough time myself. Lukas - thank you for your help!

I agree that the "AfterEnd" name is weird, and I'd like us to arrive at a better name. However, as to using some final name that we won't need to change, please note that we have yet to change more than just this option name - we also need to introduce smarter logic for whether to start mining after cracking. So maybe this option will need to change from being a Boolean to being "minimum seconds since last keypress required to start mining", and e.g. value -1 would disable mining (to be documented in a nearby comment). Or maybe having two options is cleaner (a Boolean and a number, even though the latter will only be used when the Boolean is true). I am not sure. Lukas, Rafael - I'll let you figure this out and decide on it on your own. Thanks, Alexander
