For me, threads is something I frequently change, depending on what I'm trying to do or what networked system I'm currently running on, so I always set that from the command line. Just my preference: customize the .ini as you see fit. The new .ini is simply meant to document the possible options.
I just remembered something else to bring up, but will have to wait for another tune session to show an example. I get a repetitive skewed error message with the new .ini file. All seems to run fine afterward, though. This was with and without removing the existing tune data. I suppose it might have to do with the threads edit. I'll post an example later, unless it never shows again.
