In my honest opinion (debian hat), the simplification of the stack is a key
point for end users/developers. A gain in usability might justify a small
performance penalty.

I can think on both sysadmins and network apps developers, or even casual
advanced users. For many people, dealing with the network stack is already
challenging enough.

Also, ideally, servers would be clean of the GCC or CLANG suites.
