I like the idea, but I'd prefer the function to take a bitwise single
flag argument instead, with proper constants. APIs with several
booleans as arguments are confusing and not easy to read, as it's
not clear what the values are doing, or if they are booleans at all.
I'll merge this for 1.17.x once the above is done.
