At the risk of repeating myself - another reason is that the default
settings cause the client to download about a month's worth of work for
OGR, even on a very fast machine. It's all too easy for someone to start
working on OGR (or their client switch over automatically), then decide
that it's taking too long and abandon OGR, leaving tons of blocks
stashed away never to be worked on.

Please can this default be reduced by a lot!
