Subject: Screensaver

I had an Idea for a feature you guys could implement. Tell me what you
What I was thinking is that some of the plugins (such as bounce, clock,
cube, snow, oscillograoh, or vu_meter) could be used in a 'screensaver' like
way. There could be a setting that you could pick which plugin you would
like to use, and how long from the last button press it would take before
the screensaver would turn on. It would be kind of like the backlight, it
would turn on (or in the screensavers case, off) with any button press. You
could also set it to be able to change and it wouldn't turn off. I think
this would be a cool feature, and I know that I would use it. But I also
realize that there are a lot of other things to do, so here it is to think
about and maybe it will get done some day. If only I new any programming, I
think I would do it myself.

Also, I think it would be cool if someone could make the snow on the 'snow'
plugin pile up depending on how long the plugin has been running.

Thanks for everything you guys do.
