[Gmsh] Changing the angle threshold for recombining to degenerate quadrangles

Apparently the angle option is only honored when
Mesh.RecombinationAlgorithm = 0 ;

Before I was using
Mesh.RecombinationAlgorithm = 1 ;

Follow-up question: 
Is it possible to allow degenerate quadrangles when using the Blossom recombination algorithm?

The optional expression on the right hand side specifies the maximum difference (in degrees) allowed between the largest angle of a quadrangle and a right angle (a value of 0 would only accept quadrangles with right angles; a value of 90 would allow degenerate quadrangles; default value is 45).
