Allow Additional Pre-Hit / Retract Distance When calibrating an analogue probe with DCC+DCC

When calibrating an analogue probe, due to the required number of hits (25) it can take a long time. To alleviate this reducing the pre-hit / Retract to say 0.5mm will improve the throughput. This however only works if the tip position is known. If using DCC+DCC calibration could we not have an additional field so the tip position is found with a user-defined larger pre-hit / Retract and then reverts to the smaller user-defined  pre-hit / retract post finding tip.
