There... is... another... SkywalkerEEHHHHHHHH <keels over dead>. There are
*three* chooser views. The third one is the one you want; it lists only things
that Setup wants to change. It's a much shorter list, and you just go through
those and click them to keep and you're done.
I don't blame you for not knowing that; *I* didn't until fairly recently, and
I'm coding a lot of the GUI!
