Thee first point remains at the original value, while the second
will be at the value you clicked. 

This is usually exactly what I want, except that I need to separate
them, i.e. make a short fade instead of an instant change. Note that
without the first point, the original value would be lost and every-
thing to the left would be affected. Which is almost never what I

A small improvement would be the create the first point one 'point
width' left of the new one instead of at the same X position. That
would it make easier to grab either of them if the value difference
in Y is very small.

Moving it to some convenient spot will be faster. But yes, being
able to create just a single point would be a good thing.
