Except when it isn’t, there is a CSRF angle to this which we currently
ignore and I agree to is little enough to not worry about too much, but

That said, I’ve been living with forced-admin couches for two years

encourage to give it a try :) — That also said, I’m not everybody,
so this is just a data point.

Sorry for leaving this out, with having a /_setup endpoint, I 100%
agree that the setup should doable from the command line or config
