>From the past discussion I think it is mainly those heavy-traffic sites 
that would benefit from it. I think we had exactly two folks mentioning a 
problem with occasional messages getting not processed somehow. Both with 
high-volume sites. So, the majority does not need this feature to be on.
On the other hand, exactly those people who need it will also be hit most 
by the performance hit (as small as it may be).
Unfortunately none of them participated in the recent discussion.
