[rabbitmq-discuss] RabbitMQ and -smp

Hi all, 

I've been running some tests on RabbitMQ and I noticed during my first
few runs that the broker was only using one processor on a 4-processor
machine. After a bit of research I found the "-smp" switch for erl, and
setting this did seem to have the correct effect. My question is, is
there some reason that SMP  support is not enabled in the default
scripts provided with RabbitMQ? Is there anything I need to be careful
about when enabling this?
