Although this is, indeed, a good policy, the .29 -> .30 change was a
significant step for the networking code. Why not give .32 a try, but
keep .29 around in case it causes you problems?

Now, granted, unless you're running a server of some kind, you're not
going to see any particular performance boost in networking...
