I was just pointing plain mesh interactive creation. Parametric
objects would be nice but I see it as separate from "plain mesh" as if
you want to get a 8 side cylinder to start tweaking as mesh, you want
that, not get the parametric and have to convert... parametrics could
be a new type, btw, with Alt+C and so on like Text or Curves.

I think the biggest current issue is that button changes can not
update things in real time. For example in Nkey, click & drag changes
the Xpos value, and once you release, the object moves in the
views. Or sharpness control in the second video.
