Back button behavior... STATE_SAVING_METHOD?

Hi,

Noticed the behavior of using the browsers back button in the web client.  It can get the user confused when the server thinks the user is on a different page.

Found the following on http://www.jsf-resources.com

In many cases when using JSF, you?ll notice that the back button does not behave as expected. This is due to the fact that the state is saved on the server, and when you use the back button, the server still thinks you are on a different page. Adding the following will save the state on the client side, making the back button behave in a more expected manner. 

<context-param>
<param-name>javax.faces.STATE_SAVING_METHOD</param-name>
<param-value>client</param-value>
</context-param>

What would be the affect of changing this in alfresco?  Is there a specific reason why it is set to "server" in the web.xml file?

thanks!

Chris
