The electric tape (or static cling black vinyl) over the sensor is a great idea, that will achieve the goal. However it should be an option for those of us who prefer this setting!
I totally agree. I'm glad to see this being discussed.

I drove a VW Passat regularly for business a few years back and loved the auto headlight feature. But get this, the auto headlights didn't light the tail lights. You had to remember to turn on the headlight switch at night or you'd be driving with headlights and no tail lights. That was stupid!
