I guess it might be interesting if Notepad "felt" like one of those Steno
pads with the wire spiral binding across the top, but with tabbed dividers
in it. Essentially much like the Notepad already is, but without the
ability to scroll into (or even see) the previous/following note.

I've got some groupings of notes that directly relate one to another and the
paper roll is a bonus for that, but in other folders, the notes have little
to do with one another (besides their general topic, which is why they're
all in that folder), so there's not much gain from the paper roll. But then
there's no real loss either.

So, for me, I'm perfectly satisfied with the way I interact with Notepad. I
just throw these musings out for others...

- Eric.
