I really don't understand this.  I must have missed the discussion
that talked about what the point of directives to have people
modify the string is or what the point of including the OS
in the string if it is going to default to being disabled.
If it isn't enabled by default, then from my perspective it is just
extra bloat that doesn't gain anything.  All the arguments for adding
it are pretty void if only a small percent of servers use it.
