Absolutely! I think it's really amazing.

Yep, but it's too slow. Probably we need a way to have the update
manager use different durations for different views -- maybe the views
should save them in the ZZScenes (i.e., flobsets) or something. Text
reactions just have to be faster than cell reactions, especially when
you're typing text in. (Well, same for typing text into cells, so maybe
the primitive actions should set the duration.)
