It is very rare for it to be useful to select the bias voltage at
runtime - it's usually something that's decided by the electrical
engineering at system design time and linked to selection of passive
components rather than something that a user could usefully vary. I
suspect in the situations where it is useful to vary it you'd want a
layer of indirection mapping it onto some user observable behaviour (or
the system should just do this autonomously as with the various low
power mic detect solutions out there). What situations are you aware of
where runtime configuration is useful?
