Special builds: strlen-8182 & log vs regular builds

What is the disadvantage of running NSIS-strlen-8192 or NSIS-log. Why are these compiled out by default?

Because they add extra overhead and the majority of users do not need to use these features.

Out of interest what's the overhead? 8K per Var instead of 1K?

Per variable, per section, per constant and per every internal buffer.
