Does that apply to all the tables?  I don't know the code that well.
All I was doing was disabling the mptable cleanly.  If there's
consensus that we don't need any tables that low it would be an easy
change to make.  Otherwise I think it's better left to someone who
understands all the tables and why they are where they are.  It makes
sense to me to put them all in one place.
