Comment (by adamrbrown):

 Taking over the 3d parameter is a bad idea. Check the
 [http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/update_option codex entry
 on update_option] for why it's there. Since there are probably plugins out
 there that expect the third and fourth args to look like that, changing
 them can only hurt.

 As for making the autoload parameter get recognized even for an existing
 option, sure, that wouldn't be a problem. It would take a little more work
 with the patch, though. I'll take a look at how difficult it would be.
