while I'm in favour of increasing buffers etc. and thus make use of the
vastly expanded storage and RAM commonly available today, I think this
one has a privacy impact and should not be increased by default - three
days should be enough to diagnose the most common cases of malfunction
and abuse, and where more is indeed needed the correct knob is easily

(This is just my personal opinion, but since you asked for comments I
wanted to share my first thought when looking over the list.)

As always, thank you for the tremendous work you do for INN!
