In most cases, you'll get best coverage by running with the default
settings--so essentially just supplying the target host/port
combination. Tuning is going to be best if you want to cut out certain
classes of vulnerabilities (say, RFI for example) if you don't care
about them or have some other reason for not wanting to test them.

Using mutate options is going to dramatically increase the amount of
time testing takes.
