Umm, I could have sworn that we'd had discussions about this several
times in the past and the favoured solution was to make the question
a 3-way:

 * popcon no
 * send a one-shot message *now* (default)
 * popcon yes

But for the life of me I can't find a reference in the archives. It
might have been IRL, I guess. Does anybody else remember this?
