Thanks for the (six) PM(s)!
Yes Quarx has merged it in automatically when he merged the cyanogenmod changes from upstream. ie the CM devs have implemented it. So here the slim devs have to add it, not me. I haven't forked settings app, that's why. You could ask them though. What is the issue, you know about the the double tap and hold the lockring for torch option? Under Security->Sider targets&shortcuts?
