So do I read that as a vote in favor of extra frames for the pencil?

Yes. (No.) :)

My intention was to make the first few frames get the user's attention if
they're lucky enough to see the animation before it's finished playing, but
otherwise not annoy them. The last frame should stand by itself.

Also, no, netscape/whatever does not re-download animations every time it
repeats them. However I believe netscape 2.x had a really annoying memory
leak regarding looping animations.

And yes, looping animations have indeed emotionally traumatized me for life,
therefore I cannot participate in or condone such reckless behavior.

*ponder* - maybe not.

The other post claiming a newbie wouldn't know what a package is is valid -
perhaps "the most people - the most software" would be better?
