Shortest Proof Games ending in a Double Mate by a promotion to a Knight

For (almost) each promotion to a Knight move, which is the shortest proof game without duals that ends in a double mate? Some additional conditions may apply.

Many thanks to Hirokaz Onoda, who posted the current record table on the Retro mailing list on Sep. 6th, 2007.
