The problem with initialisation is that there is no data to start
with, so such a "default adaptor" can't come into play until you've
gathered some spam and ham.  But as part of this extra fine tuning
step I proposed, it sure seems interesting to try to derive good
settings for the options at several moments in time and see whether
they differ widely for all us early adaptors.
