Hi Michiel,

Glad you like it! :) It is a really difficult concept to design UI for, 
isn't it? I was struggling with it for several months, too, and my 
earlier design mockups, e.g.,
were embarrassingly complicated. Now when I look at them again, I 
actually don't know what I was trying to do then :)
