Given that the question was about "a fairly large cluster with a
fairly small number of users", I think my answer was correct about a
majority of the installations in the field. You didn't notice anyone
with a large cluster leaping up to disagree, did you? That's how we
take polls in our community ;) ;)

For just about any question and answer, there is a different situation
where the reverse answer is true. If you have a fairly small cluster,
I'd say doing whatever the admin is comfortable with is probably most
cost effective.
