Funny, I was just thinking the very same thing 

David Friedman who wrote one of the most interesting books on anarcho-capitalism and some fascinating economics, has a blog now. He wonders:
Low volume toilets are supposed to save water. They also, at least in my experience, tend to get stopped up more than ordinary toilets. Someone should do a statistical study relating the fraction of low volume toilets in an area to both water usage and expenditures on plumbers. Assuming water is saved--the process of getting a toilet unstopped can require multiple flushes--it might turn out to be very expensive water.

And yes, this was written after yet another session applying a plumber's snake to a low flow toilet.
Ditto, a few hours ago.
