We are in no position to make such decision as there are a couple of unanswered
questions that we must first deal with.

How big is the memory and performance footprint? How much more memory apps such
as banshee, MD and others consume. How longer the initialization of MD takes?

The debugging mode code is not well tested. Not so long ago, I fixed a memory
leak that happened for all frames of an exception stack-trace. So how much work
is there to make it really production ready?

What is the impact of enabling this for other projects? Will this have any
impact on the debugger, for example?

Anyway, unfortunately right now we cannot have --debug and generic sharing at
the same time or the debugger breaks. Neither Martin or Mark have reported on
fixing the issue. Let's get over this first before moving on with the

So, if this change is to be done, it's not happening on the 2.2 time frame as
the runtime team have too much at hand and there are quite some work to get to
the point that it's sane do it.
