Well, the reason we control either stage1 or stage2 norms from the command line is because msieve's defaults are from the era before GPUs, while GPUs produce 50-100x more data from stage1.

So, if you're running CPU only, I'd relax stage1 norm to half of default, or maybe even default. That should yield enough raw polys for size-opt to have useful work to do.
