So, I think it makes sense to change the default for LRA to on now.  Port maintainers for which this isn’t the right choice (sh, cause code size regressions), can then default it to off in the port.  We can then use the #define LRA in the port as an indicator that things are not fine on that port and ideally LRA should be enhanced to make the port work better.  When no port has a #define left, we can then safely rm -rf all the non-LRA code.
