Yeah, I think it was always sort of a given that this would never work

It's a shame really, it's IMO by far the best controller idea I've seen
- knobs on a mouse-driven computer screen are, have always been, and
will always be, completely inappropriate...
I wonder how useful it would be with the limitation of keeping it
confined to one window would be... with Gtk3, the entire app draws to a
single Cairo context so I believe it should be straightforward to draw a
big fan or whatever across the entire window...
I should probably implement this idea in FlowCanvas for (at least)
Ingen. It should be doable there, confined to the canvas of course, but
since it's scrollable it should be possible to make that usable by
automatically scrolling as needed (the usual thing with dragging stuff
in a scrollable widget).
