I wrote most of the commercial flagging code and I don't even use
Auto-skip, so I would not want this option turned on by default.
I don't use 'notify' mode either.  Auto-skip ON should be a
conscious decision by the user if the decide that the commercial
flagging works well enough on their recordings to allow it to auto-skip
during playback.  Even in places where the flagger does work well, it
still may not work well on some channels, so enabling auto-skip by
default across the board should be a user decision based on the
channels they record from.
