Rigid tapping fast retract

Could we have a multiplier for rigid tap retract. As the thread is already cut there would be no problem doubling or quadruple the programmed spindle speed on retract.
Thoughts?

If they say it can't be done- I find a way!

I think we can add this feature, will study it when my collegue will be back to work.
Adaptive tapping feature is also already planned, so hopefully we can add both the same time.
I think Derek adviced the adaptive tapping feature some time ago which is basicly that if the spindle rotation stucks because the spindle is not powerful enough to finish the thread then the controller automatically reverses the spindle and retract and then it goes a second round and if again stucks then a third round etc. until it reaches the programmed depth.
I think we can implement both of these features, but will have to study it with my collegue first to make sure...
