Doesn't Aquarium set the UCI options for the remote engines? How do you set other important options like the Hash size or the GaviotaTbPath?

To put it differently, why is the "Threads=1" option different from the equally important "Hash=1024" or "GavioataTbPath=C:\Data\Gaviota"?

I'm retesting. It used to be that the remote server was enough to set # threads and aquarium could be ignored. I noticed that with the new Aquarium and new remote servers you don't have an option to ignore your local Aquarium and only go by remote settings. So my current test is to specify both with the local Aquarium and remote servers a # threads =1. So far so good.
