Background Job Settings in config.php or autoconfig.php

Is there a “Background jobs” > “Cron” setting that can be placed in the $AUTOCONFIG array in autoconfig.php or in the $CONFIG array in some Multiple config.php file? Or, is there some plan in the roadmap to include this setting?

Something like:

'backgroundjobs_mode' => 'cron',

Since Cron is the suggested method for Background Jobs, having a config setting just makes sense, but I don’t see one in the docs.

Here is an article somewhat related, so the question has been broached before.

I would consider using occ, but it doesn’t always work, and there should probably be a PHP config setting anyway because that’s how to be a cool.
