I think that we are in agreement. I thought you meant not remove that
from the conf file until 2.2 or 2.4, but I clearly did not real your
note carefully enough. I expect that a recommendation to remove that
directive entirely should be made on dev@, rather than here, although
I'm sure that there are people here that would have opinions on it as
well. Meanwhile, I'll hold off on the change until people trickle back
from their Chrismas holidays, and have a chance to comment.
