In my opinion 5-man would detract from the game.  There's an extra life built into every loop, after all, and 5-man settings would dictate never going for it.  That seems a bit arbitrary to me, and forced.

I'd prefer changing the extra lives settings to only award a single extra life at 20K or 30K and sidestep having to watch every inp for exactly 5 deaths.

We already have one pain-in-the-ass-to-adjudicate game with Vs SMB, I don't think we need another.  Also, I don't feel like everybody and their momma is going to be marathoning PP -- it's a tricky game that can eat fistfuls of lives at a time.

After playing for a week or so, FWIW, I say keep the default, 5-man settings.  I'm finding the extra life on the level w/ the moving platform to be much easier to get if you slide down the pillar with one foot on the moving platform, and one hanging off the right, then jumping when it reaches the far right of its movement.  Those of us who don't care for beatemups or suck at puzzles might just grind this one to oblivion if need be.
