Custom Setting - Program line

Just wonder what setting of Program line other people prefer ? Normal / Hi speed / Depth / MTF ?
The reason I ask is that digitals with smaller chips already have wider depth-of-field, so would not it be better to prefer Hi Speed program line ?

After reading a bit here and there about this ... and other users recommendations ... I have selected MTF for mine as well.

I selected MTF, because when I shoot auto, the most common mode for me is AV, so I use the program like AV, only the camera selects an optimal aperture for that lens to begin with. I use this for quick grab shots as a time saving device (i.e. full auto, but not having to worry about starting off with or having the camera select a poor aperture setting)
