(So, disable it :)).

How many users back up their systems daily? how many users back up
their systems and do (which is, tbh, what I usually do) look at the
logs of what's getting backed up to see an increase/decrease in the
backup size?

FWIW, I am not particularly with or against leaving it enabled, except
the idea of "sticking with upstream defaults if it doesn't cause
serious issues", especially as it's a runtime pref that the users can
flip at any time.
