'[EE] Eagle - turning off thermal reliefs'

Doing copper pours (filled polys) appears to force thermal reliefs.  Is there a setting to turn that off?  In some cases, such as a small switcher I am laying out, I want total pours over components.

There's an icon on the Polygon toolbar, called "Polygon Thermals Off"

You can mess with this in the DRC settings.  Keep in mind the reason they
are there in the first place though.  The large copper plane acts like a
heat sink and can make soldering difficult.
