Maybe sopteffort? I’ve intentionally kept it to the default value of 0 just to limit my test space, but it seems likely to be involved (size optimization time is proportional to sopteffort+1). I believe Ed varied it and got differing results, e.g. the place of the final winning polynomial at the end of size optimization varied wildly with higher values of sopteffort while this “nplace” metric was single digits for default values of sopteffort.
Should sopteffort = k * ropteffort, say with k near 1? 0.5?
