NamedScratchpad is very nice addition; I wonder if it would be better
combined into the regular Scratchpad module to avoid some of the code
duplication and for simplicity of searching, documenting and

Although I've not gotten around to using it yet, I definitely plan to.
I would mainly use this for tiled applications, so I would love to see
you merge it into Util.Scratchpad (re-implement existing scratchpad fns
in terms of the more general versions from NamedScratchpad) and include
the float parameter. Other opinions?

Thanks Konstantin!
