New Layer Filters and speed of client

With the new Layer Filters in place, client computational speed has decreased a lot and regular puzzle are even slower than before.
A) I would like to suggest that the new Layer Filters, where applicable, be only contributing to the final score (or computation pass) of a tool iteration, not as long as the tool is running but only at the very end before it stops.
B) Provide a mechanism for turning OFF the Layer Filters with the provision that the score will be uploaded to the Foldit site "only" after the Layer Filters are turned ON again. Thus allowing speedier folding but still proper filtering of the score.
That way trying to build a new protein shape with new AA would be easier, less jerky and above all faster. Right now, even with a well know protein chain, on denovo, it is hard to reach a stable configuration and recipes take so long to run.
Other suggestions please!
