[mapguide-internals] Tweaking serverconfig.ini defaults for 2.1

In general, I think it would be a good idea to tweak the settings for a
more "normal" installation where you see lots of layers, etc.  This
would go a long way towards addressing some of the performance
complaints.  Ideally, people would take the time to configure MapGuide
for their expected load, secure it properly, etc, but I doubt this is
all that common.

I think the main problem with not excluding these providers is running
into locking issues when trying to edit the files via MapGuide.  I don't
think that this is a common use though.  Perhaps including them, and
providing documentation on requirements for editable layers would be a
better choice.  

I think someone (Dave Wilson maybe?) proposed setting up two references
to the providers, one of which wasn't excluded, and only using the
excluded version on RW data sources.  I haven't tested this though.

What do people think about tweaking the defaults for serverconfig.ini?

My understanding is that the CacheSize=100 setting is a bit small for
everything beyond a few basic maps

Also what about the SDF & SHP with DataConnectionPoolExcludedProviders
