Yes, but if the fast path only has a hard-coded default, then the
day a change in the parameters is needed, one of the following

- people have to customize their kernels (the complexity of which
  depends on whether that setting is also available as a config
- people need to update qi, or
- we lose the fast path

Neither of which is particularly desirable.

Anyway, Andy has made it clear that he's not interested in
implementing this, so I'll make a patch for it later.
