I object to having this in the simple preferences. This option is
extremely insecure. There are known ways to overwrite arbitrary files with
the HTTP interface...

If this option is so easy to find, users will enable it just because it
sounds cool. IMHO, this is not acceptable until the HTTP interface has
proper authentication and confidentiality out-of-the-box.
