5 seconds, 25 seconds, 2 minutes, 10 minutes, 50 minutes...

It starts off very short (I'm tested 5 seconds after first seeing the card), but it grows by a factor of 5 each time. I got used to these intervals years ago (IIRC I was using Ebbinghaus for OS X) and it suited my learning style.

However, I couldn't configure Pleco's SRS the same way:

- I tried setting "Points per day" to 86400 (each point is worth 1 second). This worked for a while, but I soon discovered that cards have a
__hardcoded maximum score of 204800__. This limits the*maximum*interval length:

- Expected intervals: ...1 day, 5 days, 25 days...
- Actual intervals: ...1 day, 2.4 days, 2.4 days...

- As a compromise, I then tried setting "Points per day" to 96 (each point is worth 15 minutes). This allows intervals of up to 5.8 years. However, new cards have a
__hardcoded starting score of 100__, which limits the*minimum*interval length:- Expected intervals: 15 minutes, 1.25 hours, 6.25 hours...
- Actual intervals: 1.04 days, 5.2 days, 26 days...

- Is it possible to configure Pleco's SRS to have the intervals I'm used to, or something close?

- If not, are there any short-term changes to Pleco that would make this possible? I'd suggest making the starting score configurable, but I don't know how hard that would be.
- I read on the forums that there's an upcoming SRS update. I imagine that won't happen for a while, but I'm curious: would the SRS update make what I'm trying to do easier?
