Make shield on crouch opt-in for mouse

    Whether it's "opt-in" or "opt-out" doesn't matter much to me, as long as it's going to be optional in one way or another. If I crouch, it's generally to move slowly or avoid falling off blocks; I'd rather not have a shield obscure my sight just because that I'm trying to move carefully (that would actually make it harder for me to step around precisely), but I'd also rather not use a resource pack to "semi-hide" the shield nor have to un-equip my shield to see well.

    TL;DR: I support this.

    I wouldn't disable it by default, but certainly add an option to turn it off. It's actually useful, because you can block with a bow in hand.

    I think it might be nice to have an option, but I agree with Valiant that it should be disabled by default. You can block while holding a trident or bow using sneak with a shield, and that is very useful.
