That's nice, it would be great to have state-saving built-in too.   
But for some reason on Mac OS X, the slider part doesn't show up on  
the help patch. But it does if I open up the object itself.

Oh, I see, its the annoying cross-platform size differences.  That  
needs to be fixed so bad... hmm... I started on it, but didn't quite  
get there..
