Thanks Frank for the documentation, I'll look at those files. If I take
prince for example, I see that there are a lot of options in the github
issue doc. Do john-devs want Johnny to put all available options in the UI
for those 3 modes even if it has risk of confusing less advanced user or we
could choose the most important ? We could do it 3 ways:
1) Only add the options relevant to the majority of the users.
2) Add all options in johnny. However, we could separate in two areas
(essential options for the mode vs advanced options) (differentiate
optional vs essential parameters)
3)Add all options and don't separate them.
