I guess my approach w.r.t. a mailing list has always been that I'd like to help others avoid spending time learning something I can help with. As such (paraphrasing) "try it and you'll see" isn't a response I'd give. Of course, in absence of finding the answer in the documentation or via Mr. Google, we can always set up a test system and investigate (given the ominous warnings, I wouldn't have done so on a production system) ... but then why have the list?

Thank you for an answer that nicely goes "above and beyond" my expected "(we) use these settings" response. So your effort can be of maximum benefit, I've submitted a slightly edited/formatted version of this to be included in the WiKi's applicable pfSense documentation page.
