HP neural net question

I have a question. Right now, I can play with the number of nodes in the hidden layer.

But as I understand the code, you can vary the nodes but the hidden layer is always 1. Does the user

have options to play with altering the number of actual layers.  This idea

resonates behind the whole notion of single layer perceptron(hidden layer =1) vs.

multiple layer perceptron(hidden layer > 1).  One of the biggest developments in neural nets is the improvement in performance in going from single layer perceptron to multiple layer perceptron.   Please advise when you have a chance.

Rboire - all you have to do is specify multiple hidden statements, one for each layer you want.
