This is basically a typo, and I'll fix it right now. Here's the history...
It was added in r1.77 when it said "The default value of this setting is
<code>false</code> (no parser reuse). Setting the value to
<code>true</code> can result in a performance improvement when parsing
large numbers of files in sequence."
Then in r1.78 I changed the defalult to true, and changed the values in
<code> from false/true to true/false. But the second sentence should
have been flat out removed. Sorry for the miss.
