Why, yes indeed!  That's the benefit of changing the ignition timing on the
fly.  You can maximize the timing curve by advancing until knock, then back
it off in "real-time" (so to speak).

Another trick that's come up here from time to time is to pre-advance the
distributor from it's idle-setting a few degrees and ONLY run higher octane
fuels.  Benefits???  Dunno.  Perhaps they're trying to cheat some pre-set
advance limit by pre-advancing the ignition to begin with.

It's runnable from a Web server....I believe www.fish.com.  Do yourself a
favor and run it on your site *before* the bad guys do!!!!
