Chain length comparison for Macau

Friday I was looking in to the repeatability of the Macau algorithm, and in stock settings it’s not repeatable at all. I tested chain lengths between 500 and 250,000, and no length produced the same number of DMRs between 5 runs.

Next I’m going to start Emu on 500k and 1mm lengths, but the 250k took ~5.5 hours to run, so results will be a little while in coming.
