Hi, Doug-

I failed to state that the 0 to 1 range would be a float representing a
percentage of the maximum intensity, not a boolean.

Another scheme might be to have it be a float as a multiplier of intensity,
such as 1==normal speed/accelleration/whatever, 1.5 is half again that
number, 2 is twice as much, etc.

Thoughts?

Regards-
Doug
