Shared heap in R9C-0 ?

Hi,

A question mainly to Erlang developers:

In the source README file for R9B the --enable-shared-heap configure option
was explicitely mentioned.
In R9C-0 it is not mentioned, but it still works. So when starting the erlang
machine built like this, it prints

Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.3 [source] [hipe] [shared heap] [threads:0]
                                                    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
According to some measurements I made, it really provides some speedup.
So my question is: Why is it not mentioned in the configure help or the README file ?
Is it planned to be removed ? Is it not considered stable ?

Best regards,
	Zoltan
