I haven't looked at 12.1 because I've been using Milestone#1 of 12.2 for

Why not "summary" as default?; then 'normal users' do not have to use CLI (again) to allow all options.

Remember the intended user; we are the exception when we continually play around with the CLI (which I admit is much more fun for geeks).
