What is the largest penalty you have ever seen?

Today I had to issue a 4 trick penalty.    It seems declarer was merrily ruffing two suits, when he could have followed.   I am guessing that under the current rules, a 7 trick penalty is the maximum (you can't win the trick if you revoke when trumps led).

The good news for declarer is that a 4 trick penalty and a 1 trick penalty likely would lead to the same matchpoint score.

Until today, I hand never seen more than a 2 trick penalty.    Anyone do better than 4?
