Slider is OK concept, if it works. It's not clear to me what the proposed
alternative is or how it would be used.
My hunch is hardware stays the same with button areas on what is now a
sliver. That makes sense for cursor functions. I am baffled as to how vi
key bindings might be presented.
Your note is very clever.
