Sure. I also got an email from a user who suggested to remove them
(the  accept_redirects and source_route) as well as the forwarding as
they are are turned off by default. What do you think about that? I
think we can keep them. The old procps sysctl.conf has the forward
option and the redirect is probably a common option too.
