Though sliders are nice to adjust when things dont have a 'enumerated'
nature like "tilt sensitivity" - it is hard to justify what a setting of
"35" does, but having a slider is easier since you can visualize the range
easier.. But I am not really sure what the ideal solution would be.. For
percentage-type stuff (0-1 values) sliders are good (like for opacity)
Maybe the spinbutton would be ok after all, testing it in practice would
give more ground to judge the stuff.. It's a lot about how you are used to
doing different things and how long you have been using a feature..
