I think that one isn't needed. I don't think anyone wants to set it  off 
per document, except if one parses slowly in which case we can turn it 
of automatically (with notification). When I said per-document setting I 
meant internally, not one actually accessible in the menus.

This is more what I meant. I'm not so sure an extra dialog is needed, 
but if people want one that's ok. Would a "don't ask me again" checkbox 
be a good idea (if it doesn't already).

Best regards.
