I was just thinking that myself. Also, since the program has to 
include functionality to "skip unless it's more than x" then it would 
seem that there isn't the code cleanup reason to remove this. Ie, the 
code is virtually identical whether x is a compiled in fixed value or 
fetched from a settings database.

I think it's the only one in the list I'd disagree with removing.
