i prefer the present settings as latexmk % produces dvi without sync information which now not many will consider useful.
The default should already give a benefit to those who try the command. (and changing the options is tedious work ...)

currently, latexmk is in TXS supposed to make use of pdftex with either
dvi or pdf output:

  latexmk -dvi -silent -latex="latex -src %%O %%S" %
  latexmk -pdf -silent -pdflatex="pdflatex -synctex=1 %%O %%S" %

If the user wants different settings, either in command line or stored
in a .latexmkrc file, he needs to create a personal user command:

  latexmk %

just for this. IMHO, it should be preferable to make latexmk agnostic
and let the user adjust its settings by himself (anyhow, a user who
makes use of latexmk is not a beginner and knows what he's doing).
