I think Peter's smooth scrolling has to do with scrolling pages of
lists (and yes, smooth scrolling in this sense would be nice, or you
could set your repeat rate lower so it scrolls slower, because really,
thats all smooth scrolling is, a slower scroll.

As for Justin's version, its more of a side scrolling, and I
completely agree that it would be a great feature, especially in
MythMusic. Now we wait for Isaac to get back to playing with the eye
candy stuff =)
