Suffice it to say that this has been investigated in detail over the
past few years and the keep-alive comment lines provide the highest
level of service for both the client (all clients) and the server.  As I
stated in my first post, there are some sysops who run specific servers
without keep-alives but have other less effective safe guards in place
to prevent a single client from causing issues with particular server
and client installations.
