The more navigation abilities you can pack into the
mouse, the better. For instance, shift+scroll wheel
for zooming, or using extra buttons for zooming (my new
mouse has "back" and "forward" thumb buttons which map
to X mouse buttons 6 and 7.)

Maybe hold down scroll wheel _button_ and drag to slide
through the file very quickly?

Probably other things would be nice, too, but those are
the only specific ones I thought of while trying it out
last night.

    .. I'll look into this.. however, if you're not aware, you
    can mouse whell on the zoom 'dials' below and to the right
    of the wave rendering window.

    But yes, I'd like it eventually to play like a first person
    shooter with left hand on keyboard and right on mouse... if
    you know what I mean :)

    "if you're not aware, you

    That's good, but requires aiming at a small area of the screen.
