	Heh - I think the general concept of things appearing instantly on a
timeout you can't see, and then being click-able is a really bad one. We
had this with header-footer widgets getting clicked by mistake.

	I've heard the complaints -worse- I've seen the effects at conferences:
"oh, where did that slide go" (afterwards it turned out to be
accidentally hidden) that have harmed people's talks, not isolated
examples either and different to Kendy's set so ... ;-)

	Yep - it seems a shame to hide something that is quite beautiful and
seems like it -should- be really useful, but ... screwing up people's
presentations is not ideal ;-)
