I tried some values, amd I think max_size = 10000 (or something a bit
smaller, 5000 or 7000) and step_factor = 0.4 should give reasonable
tuning time. When I run ./tuneup -t here, I get

#define HGCD_REDUCE_THRESHOLD            ...
sizes 30 to 9748 total 162 measurements
#define HGCD_REDUCE_THRESHOLD             2205

I'm considering checking in that change.

BTW, it would be nice if tuneup -t also showed the total running time
for each (or most) tuned threshold.


PS. Thanks for adding the new thresholds on the web page, even before I
got around to asking you for it. ;-)
