Like which? There's a few obvious candidates that I'd really, really
like to see on by default - like delay pools - but I don't know of any
which have no extra processing overhead.

(well, processing overhead compared to how inefficient stuff is atm, sure,
but thats changing..)

Heck, I've looked at the Vary processing overhead and -that- seems to
be reasonably appreciable on the Wikimedia Squid I've got oprofile running
on. Bit scary, that.
