I will vote -1 to the proposal:
- this has no actual performance benefits that I can see
- this is equivalent to a "benchmark" flag, where the server is slightly 
faster, but isn't useful for anything but throughtput testing (since the 
server would eventually just die)

Do you see such a benchmark setting in the HTTPd ? I think not.
I have nothing about people optimizing code, but the optimizations 
should have an actual usefulness (such as tag pools, which some people 
like). If the optimization makes the server unusable, then it shouldn't 
be there.
