        OK... this brings up the question of what other cool optimizations are
there that may have been disabled in the past for reasons that are no
longer pertinent? It might be worthwhile to create an /etc/sysctl.conf file
with commented out examples of configurations for various systems. For

# For more modern systems that have a reasonable amount of RAM

# Low memory systems

# Systems that need lots of randomness

# Low resource systems that need less randomness

# Super high performance TCP options for various situations

.... etc. I'm sure y'all can come up with more.

It might also be desirable to put these in etc/defautls/rc.conf, but I
think something of this nature might be better suited in a freer format.

    Perhaps the greatest damage the American system of education has done
    to its children is to teach them that their opinions are relevant
    simply because they are their opinions.
