What if features currently only available in the jumbo version will
finally be included into the official version?
In this case, users would have to adjust their config files again.

So I would vote for moving the options currently under [Options:Jumbo]
to the general options section, and getting rid of [Options:Jumbo].
Sorry that I didn't voice my doubts before you committed the change to
your git repository.
