The patches didn't look disgusting to me, but I admittedly just
scanned through them quickly.

Are there downsides (maintenance and/or performance) when core
scheduling _isn't_ enabled? I guess if it's not a maintenance or
performance nightmare when off, it's ok to just give people the
option.

That all assumes that it works at all for the people who are clamoring
for this feature, but I guess they can run some loads on it
eventually. It's a holiday in the US right now ("Presidents' Day"),
but maybe we can get some numebrs this week?
