I should add to this that I have no objection to seeing it raised
in 5.x-stable. I'm just saying that even if we do raise it right
now, there are a lot of users who will not be helped if the value
is only changed in 5.x-stable.
I (personally) would rather not see it changed so close to
5.4-release, but it might make sense to increase it in -stable
shortly after 5.4-release. I have no opinion on what value it
should be changed to, though, if we do increase it. I do not
work in that part of the system, so I don't know all the pros
and cons that would be involved.
