As someone with a smidge of experience in film work, I could not agree at
all that the implementation works or is, from the vantage of a motion
picture tool, "simple".

I wonder if there are things we could do that would serve motion picture
artists better here?

1) Should time remapping be given the central piece of UI real estate where
it is currently located given frequency of use?

2) Within other contextual application workflows, does the current
implementation resemble or appear understandable to a motion picture artist?

3) Aside from (2) above, given understanding of the two adjustable
variables, does it work as expected?

I worry that in all of the above questions time remapping may be sub optimal
in its current implementation and execution.

Would this be more well suited as a technique to leverage out of the VSE? At
the very least it would seem logical to migrate the current implementation
to an alternate panel of lesser prominence.
