This is similar to a feature I've seen in some audio analysis software to 
apply a dynamic filter.  Basically it works like this:

1.  Create a sonogram (or "waterfall plot") of the timestream
2.  Have the user select a region of the plot
3.  Apply a filter to the timestream based on the selection (band-pass, notch, 

I think this is a cool long term feature, but we need to implement a lot of 
infrastructure first.  The biggest one is to make datasources into a 2-way 
object so that they can write data as well as read.  Or perhaps just have a 
new "datasink" object.  

I think this kind of stuff is ~1 year away from being possible, but maybe I'm 
pessimistic :-)  Still, it's good to think of "big picture" functionality to 
keep in the back of our minds as we move forward...
