AFAIKT the waypoint mode is tied to the true heading hold mode. What you can 
do is to modify the u_min and u_max around line 137 in generic-autopilot.xml 
to allow the autopilot to command a greater bank angle say 40 degrees instead 
of the current 20 degrees. But this might cause the autopilot to overshoot 
more or even become unstable. Remember: controller tuning is an art ;-)
