obviously "auto 0.5" is less intuitive for you (and others) than "auto
1" + "rate 0.5"
so the question is: should we change the other (OS-specific)
implementations of pix_film to ignore things like "auto 2" ?
or should we make it compatible ?
e.g. the actual incrementor would be a product of <auto> and <rate>
(ugly but compatible)
or just make rate and auto synonymons (but that would break the OSX-style)
