Lack of interest Bundle 'Unread Post Count' By Chris with XF Core

It'd be nice to have an on/off switch for those who don't want to show the count.
Hmmm ... how is that different to install the add-on if you want it, and don't if you wouldn't turn it on?

It would make sense to do this, especially as their is an unviewed count for the XenForo Media Gallery.

It actually makes little sense to do this as, unfortunately, the performance of the code doesn't scale very well, even with a caching mechanism.

That being said, it seems to be specific to certain set ups. Some people have had zero problems using it and it has been running on some pretty big sites. Some sites have seen it cripple performance with little solution other than to disable it.
