I don't think that it is a good idea to bloat IDE with options which are 
needed only by some (not all) translators and are rather dangerous 
(because they lead to "crashes"). Personnaly I don't need it, for example.

If you need a way to distinguish these uncertain translations from 
others you can leave comment in the entry instead of relying on fuzzy flag.
