With modern multicore machines, it has become practical to use 4 ply for match analysis. I think it would be useful to create a predefined setting for it.

Moreover, the current settings are :

world class : 2 ply, normal move filter
supremo : 2 ply, large move filter
grandmaster : 3 ply, normal move filter

Wouldn'it it be sensible to use a large move filter for this 4 ply setting, but for the current grandmaster as well ?

And obviously this new setting would need a name, ideally even more impressive sounding than those above :-).

I wonder if it my be prudent to actually redefine World Class with higher settings and go from there?

One thing I'd like to see is that Grandmaster cube be reduced from 3 to 2. 3ply (or odd ply) for cube decisions can be problematic and give results that may be unusual. Depreli study pretty shows this as well.
