I actually think that placing the safer (but more complicated) option 
first makes it more likely that people will at least read it.  But we 
can change our minds later without affecting the localizations.

Thanks!  Regarding Tom's suggestion to use colored text, we are not 
going to tackle that at this time because doing so will complicate 
localization.  Also, Mike pointed out that in situations where physical 
harm is a real possibility, the person will be so censored that they 
will know to chose the Configure option.
