But is fixed 4 threads really a better default than max threads taking
all platforms into account? It seems like a waste of course if you
have e.g. a 16 core machine, and it's likely quite slow on a dual
core. If it depends on the scene then max threads or something like
max threads -1 seems like a more future proof guess.

Besides that, I still think it's good to have an "automatic" setting
regardless if it uses 4 threads or something more adaptive.
