Huh... my current v1.0.1 production servers have this set to "yes" and
probably a lot of other people still have this set to "yes", since that's
the default.
Regularly the advice of "only change the defaults if needed" is given.
Therfore, I wouldn't just delete this configuration parameter or
funtionality, but just change the default, so that users don't use it
anymore over time!
