It's definitely not a recent addition. Scrambling free might not even be a Stone Soup addition, at least I cant find it in the commit log.
Anyway, asking for confirmation when you are about to do something incredibly stupid would be good. I didn't die a lot to misclicks, but it did happen. An option to turn the confirmations off would be nice for some people, but certainly low priority. Much lower than adding them in the first place.
The policy in DCSS is actually even stricter than previously mentioned: the player can not take any action that will immediately lead to death. If you try to move while confused and standing next to water or lava you get a prompt, asking you if you really want to do that. If you try to move *into* deep water while not confused, you don't even get a prompt. It just doesn't work. You also can not cancel levitation while floating above deep water. However, you can levitate above deep water and wait for it to run out.
