The default value is still 1 segment. To be quite honest, I was still
somewhat unclear on what the `decision' was in LA... do we go with a
2 segment IW, with a 4 segment IW, or with Sally's ~4K IW?
If this can be clarified, I'll make the appropriate change to the code. I
suppose I _could_ just change it to 2 segments now, since, as has been
repeatedly pointed out, 2 segments happens all the time anyhow. It's the
"or 4 or ~4K" thing I'm unsure about.
