True, they influence two different daemons - but it's really two options
that both have two settings:

* "talk to it via the CLI tool"
* "talk to it via a native interface"

How likely is it to have one talking via native interface and the other
via CLI? 

Also, if the native interface is faster, I think we should consider
making it the default.
