Interactive Shot Rotation Tool

So I was thinking, perhaps I should put my Flash prowess to use and develop an interactive shot rotation tool in Flash/Flex. This would provide a visual and animated look at what the flow of your shot rotation should feel like. My initial thoughts were to include an option for which rotation you want to use, be it 1:1, 3:2, or 1.5:1 as well as a place to input weapon speed and have it adjust accordingly.

Some of the questions in my head involved making it more “game-like”, requiring user input. Allow the user to put in their base weapon damage perhaps and then require button presses from the end-user to simulate firing your shot rotation. I could make liberal use of the WoW Model Viewer to get come of the shot animations and have them play during correct button presses or something like that.

If I was to make a tool like this, what features would you like to see in it? Do you think it would be useful, or is Cheeky’s and spam macros enough for the Hunter community already? I am looking for feedback, opinions, etc on the subject before I bother starting to develop it.

Oh, and I lost a Berserker’s Call to a Restoration Shaman.
