You seem to have no idea how this makes /var/spool/up2date grow over the
time... On several occasions I had this filling up my /var partition
making other stuff break. Given that (I think) the majority of people
who have to think about online costs cater only one machine from it, I'd
say the default is good. Even more so because there's a nice, shiny GUI
tool to change it ;-).
