That is exactly what is going on with swap method, people can manually
select if they see fit. Read that again, it says "can", it does not
say "must" or "have to". Out of the box they get a best guess that
should work in many cases, only in the special ones it becomes "must"
if they want good behaviour. When such new case is found and reported,
the code is changed to cover it and the "must" goes away.

Sincerily, it pretty much sounds like you both are saying the same but
not realizing it is. Only real diff is current method has GUI for
override and C code for control, and you propose all in Python.
