I do not think that is true at all. With this switch off you still get
the fine-grained read/write control which is what I think most people
want. What the switch seems to do is turn off the feature that was added
to log where it does a get on each item in the log to check that you are
authorized to see that the item was changed. Personally, I am willing to
live with this security "hole". People still cannot checkout or commit to
protected paths.
