ShowControls is a good feature, but I would like an additional switch to load the controls minimized. They're intrusive, but minimized I can just show them all the time to all devs on the site.
I like this option
I think we're going to work on a pull request for this.
Scotts, ideally I would like an option for a "debug bar" like github's one, https://github.com/blog/1252-how-we-keep-github-fast
What would also be nice is to keeping the show/minimize controls state persistent upon page requests. It's undesirable that when I minimize the controls and refresh, they're shown again .
