Nobody said computer chess programming is easy ;-)

I'd use the some form of feedback loop to pragmatically control the expected
depth of search at each move e.g. exponetial smoothing

New_Expected_Depth = Avg_Exp_Depth(1 - gamma) + gamma * Last_Depth

I guess the idea is only trying to improve play at the extremes of time controls
i.e. 3 m/g and 3 m/m
