In my experience, more users are brain-dead than OS's ;) Surely it's the
users who don't have a hope of diagnosing the kinds of intermittent problems 
that using sendfile can trigger who should be kept in mind?

Users whose performance requirements are such that they will benefit
from the use of Sendfile will find it, it's not like the option would
dissapear. Even more so if it left on in the high performance config.

It's not like anyone is proposing that the option dissapear!
