When I proposed the idea, this is exactly what I had in mind: auto-repeat to 90% certainty. The implementation is easy enough, but some people (who were not the people who didn't like it, or the people who didn't care) thought it should be an invariant number of turns not based on your searching ability.

I agree it should be a setting on confidence (rather than number of turns).

Why actually, I love them!
