People with high-overhead changes always say this, but before long
distributions will be expected to enable it and then everyone pays the
price. So I think you'll have to work on limiting the run-time overhead
when it's enabled at compile time but the user doesn't care about it.
Possibly it can be a run-time option? (I haven't looked at the code and
don't expect to have time to do so.)
