Looking at you test below, the solution without cpu argument is more
readable for me because you don't have to handle 2 cpu args that can
vary when setting your level. I'm afraid that the flags function will
become quite complex and unreadable with a cpu arg. And this
additional cpu arg doesn't give any benefit.
