performance mode? There is a module of that name, but that is for 
performance tests

nope, there was no need so far to ship with only indy or non-indy 
besides just using the jars

does install install both? otherwise you can control it using -P 
indy=true when using gradle

But in general... the non-indy build does contain indy, it just is not 
build with indy. I doubt you will notice a big difference. You still 
have to enable indy in both versions
