OK Andrea, I have a list of 50 options, of which a user can pick any, 
all or none.
These options are saved to the db using a script like the one being 

Would you really, championing the cause of the *user*, have them 
RESELECT all their options every time they wished to change ONE?
In this case preselection is mandatory, not evil

I beleive the script in question is doing the same thing - populating a 
list of checkboxes based on previous selection.

This is a classic case of a kneejerk reaction to a problem that you 
don't seem to have read enough about
