AFAIK these are just special values used to tell the integrator to
work out the appropriate initial stepsize and limits from its own
calculations. So there might be a tiny bit more lead time for an
integration with these settings. I guess it's meant to be more of a
"general purpose" setup so the user doesn't have to work on
problem-specific settings.
