Enabled by default.

As Thierry Vignaud said, some users will want it, some won't.

Fedora disables it by default:

Debian doesn't disable it AFAICS.

If it doesn't impact performance badly, 118MB on a 1TB HDD is
nothing... should be left as upstream default, enabled.

(I don't use it myself, though, as I don't use TB a lot).
