More Pressure Cooker Questions

I've pretty much decided that Fagor is the most bang for the buck for my first pressure cooker, but I'm confused by all the choices. Two big questions:

What is the advantage of having a second pressure setting? If you have one with two settings, how often do you use the lower one?

How useful is a 4 quart pot? I cook for two, but I think for most pressure cooked dishes I'd be planning on leftovers. I like the idea of the multi pot sets (with a 4 and either 6 or 8 quart pot) but with the 2/3 rule wonder how often the smaller pot would be large enough. Is the 4 quart large enough to, say, cook a pound of dry beans?

Thanks for your help!
