Agreed - I've never known install mode to kick off other users. And install
mode only affects the current session - as opposed to all sessions.

Historical gut feeling says it doesn't feel comfortable for me, but I can't
actually cite any concrete technical reasons why it should cause a problem.
Personally, I tend to only do it on servers where (as an admin) I'm the sole
user - but again that's more for a feel-good reason than anything else. With
a gun to my head, I'd do it with an active server.
