There is justifiable reason why a feature is disabled. Maybe it is
incomplete, maybe it isn't implemented for Qt port, but only Apple
or GTK or EFL port, maybe it isn't built/tested at all, ...
The disabled features aren't optional normally. The port maintainers
should determine if a feature is ready for enabling by default or not.
