This is how I understand it as well. I would not mind to remove the
Maybe we can enable Michaels heuristic with the same
config/command line flag, i.e. "the flag changes its algorithm"?
Then people, who read the prior announcement don't have to
do anything, while we keep it as an experimental feature for the
next release and auto-on it after that?
We could also be a bit more aggressive and auto-on the new
heuristic with the old heuristic removed and we only have an
(undocumented) emergency-off knob for one or two releases?
