-   - < 0 is a forced update.  It is still sequenced inline with the positive
-     updates.  Think of it as a one-bit flag set.  Use the usual test
-     mechanisms.
-   In a sense, this somewhat breaks behaviour from previous Kst versions for
-   data sources.  In the past, -1 was always used for "force".  This was not
-   particularly documented though, so I think it's OK.  Objections are welcome
-   in which case we have to come up with a different workaround.
+   - < 0 is deprecated and won't happen again in future Kst releases.
+   - updates only happen from the update thread.
+   - replace update(-1) to setDirty() and a mechanism to tell the update loop
+   to start again immediately at next opportunity (no delay).
+- 'Pause' only pauses data sources.
