I agree that the way automation editing works now is very limiting. A 
more fine-grained editing mode would be very nice.

This means it is very fiddly to edit automation for the movement of a low-pass filter for example, as the low frequency area has very few vertical pixels ...

Are there any other options than "Absolute" for the "style" attribute? (and related, how advisable is it to go hunting around in the xml like this?)
