I have two questions before I push the new message styles.
1) what should be the default variant for Smooth Operator? Right now
2) What does everyone think about appending an asterisk to the name of
bundled message styles? I've seen recurring confusion about message
styles that are bundled vs added from xtras. A user can install the
version on Xtras, but in most cases it is installed but silently
ignored because it conflicts with the bundled version. The * would
also make it a bit easier to quickly find one of the bundled styles.
