    Not sure which the original intent of this feature was focused on, but disabling local modules also should give a boost to performance (I’ve not tested it) by reducing the number of paths in the PHP include paths by one. This reduces filesystem accesses every time Magento loads a class which is quite a bit. In theory, this should make a decent performance improvement.
