I noticed that some plugins have a very large set of parameters. In the past few years, whenever options are managed, a very useful pattern has emerged: having two levels of complexity, basic, and advanced. Many plugins parameters are often computed directly from the mesh and in most scenario they don't need / should be tampered with.

This would only require the addition of an "Advanced" button on the filter interface and of an (optional) advanced flag with each parameter you set.
Note that this change would be completely back-compatible.

As an example in attachment I show the difference in between basic and advanced settings in the VLC controls

    Note that VLC's radio button style is rather ugly...
    I have seen the advanced button in some other application
    but I cannot remember which one.
