Change "Match A500 speed"

The label "Match A500 speed" in CPU panel is misleading for newbies.
It should be changed to something like "Match Amiga model speed".

This is probably a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyway. If you should always use "Match 500 Speed" anytime you use CE, then why is "Match 500 Speed" even there? Shouldn't it be turned on automatically when CE is selected? It also seems redundant to have "Match 500 Speed" when CE would seem to be the same thing. If I'm missing something here would somebody please explain.

It was originally (before CE existed) approximate a500 speed option. It still is but it is also needed for full CE compatibility.

Wouldn't it accomplish the same thing by doing away with "Match 500 Speed" option all together and simply selecting CE with a machine type as A500. It just seems redundant now that WinUAE has CE and should be eliminated and it's code used automatically. To me it doesn't serve a purpose and can be confusing. For instance, I had no idea it was supposed to be set to on anytime you use CE. I tried it and it wasn't obvious to me that it made any difference.

I've been wondering about this for awhile now and finally decided to ask.

I want to keep compatibility with old non-CE modes. There are still slow PCs around and perhaps someday there is one UAE tree again and non-CE mode is very important for small devices.
