I think the small tune of the +34HP & +63ft/lbs of torque would he ideal for most I would think... nothing too crazy, but enough to make the gain beneficial power wise... But like you said, thays pending the transmission could handle it being the key thing...Here are a few engine tunes available - they all void the warranty, and that much of a power increase can't easily happen without enhancing the cooling and ensuring the clutch will hold. But fun to think about:

Who's going to be first?
does anybody know if the 1.6 has any kind of intercooler to it??? I would think so and that its not a "hot air" car like the Buick Grand National was in the first 2 years of production... If it does have an intercooler, I would think and hope thay the little additional gain would still be sufficient to cool the intake air coming into the engine...
