Anyone is currently using the rc_fast_and_loose rc.conf variable?

Good day.

Sorry for cross-posting, but this question is really belongs to all
three lists.

Crawling over the rc.d scripts I had found the rc_fast_and_loose variable
that affects the way rc.d scripts are processed inside /etc/rc script.
There are some problems with certain rc.d script and this variable: they
are described in my post to freebsd-rc@,

The question is: does anyone uses rc_fast_and_loose?  It seems to be
undocumented and not referenced in any scripts and/or manuals.  There
are at least two ways of proceeding: fix rc.d scripts to work with
fast_and_loose and just to eliminate it from rc.subr, so it will be
good to know if the second way won't hurt anyone.
