innodb_log_archive : should I activate it?

I just install mysql 4.3.1 and I am wondering if I should archive the logfiles.

In the documentation it is said about innodb_log_archive : "This value should currently be set to 0. As recovery from a backup is done by MySQL using its own log files, there is currently no need to archive InnoDB log files. The default value of this parameter is 0" .

I have 2 log files. Usually I prefer to use archiving (at least I do it in Oracle) to be sure that records in the logfiles are not overwriten. I know that the size of the logfile should prevent this but still I would prefer. I am wondering why it is said that there is not need.

Also I have looked for information about the checkpoint. Is it a time dependant checkpoint or a size dependant. Can we modify the time or the size?
