I considered emulating the behaviour of aliquot.ub, but as that source code says "These are VERY wild guesses" I'm not sure that would be much better.

I don't know how optimal msieve's choices are. Maybe approximating that behaviour is a better start. Anyone with more knowledge of the matter care to chime in?
what version of aliquot.ub are you using?
