My initial thoughts are to leave it as not the default right now, as
much as I'd want otherwise.  It's still a pretty "new" feature at least
as far as NetBSD is concerned, but as we get closer to 5.0 time we
might be able to make a different choice about it.  There's still the
performance penalty with anything that uses fsync(2) to consider as well
- say you have a database app on the logged filesystem you'll get a
performance hit.
