Users might want to enable all features, without realizing some
features have negative effect. Mention the TCI feature is slow
and experimental, hoping it will be selected knowingly.

I'd prefer if we could keep the "TCI" in there ... I remember having grep'ed 
for "tci" in the help output in the past, so I think it would be good to 
keep the TLA here. Maybe just put "TCI, slow" in the parantheses and omit 
"experimental"?
