myisam_repair_threads

"If this value is greater than 1, MyISAM  table indexes are created in
parallel (each index in its own thread) during the Repair by sorting
process. The default value is 1.
Note :Multi-threaded repair is still beta-quality code."

The note is present is all versions of MySQL manual:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_myisam_repair_threads
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_myisam_repair_threads
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/4.1/en/server-system-variables.html#sysvar_myisam_repair_threads


Can anyone comment about whether this setting is safe, and if so on
what major versions?
