In my opinion, and that of the author of tuning(7), yes. I highly
recommend that you read tuning(7), and carefully consider the points
made therein as to whether your single slice setup is wise. Just because
Gentoo or $OTHER_POPULAR_LINUX_DISTRIBUTION does something a certain way
doesn't mean that it's right (of course, the same applies to the FreeBSD
way of doing things, but often it is right :) ).

I abhor a system designed for the "user", if that word is a coded
pejorative meaning "stupid and unsophisticated". -- Ken Thompson
If you ask the wrong questions, you get answers like "42" and "God".
Unix is user friendly. However, it isn't idiot friendly.
