Add more text animation options

We currently only have two animation options:

- typewriter (which is not very good, and too slow even at fastest setting) 

- scroll (which is way too fast to read and not speed-adjustable)

Can we have a few more options please? In particular, I'd love a "ticker" option with adjustable speed, which displays the text and just moves it along one pixel at a time, based on a selectable speed setting. Here's an example of what this looks like:

Note: This is not the same as the existing smooth scroll, which apparently suffers technical limitations preventing supporting slower scroll speed (presumably because of trying to achieve a smooth movement with the way the screen pixels are multiplexed/driven?). There is no technical limitation for this new pixel-shift/ticker option; it's just displaying text statically, then shifting it 1 pixel left, at a user-selectable speed.

Another good option might be one that shifts the text letter-by-letter (similar to typewriter, but without the drop-down animation each time, and with the option to go a bit faster than typewriter does) as I could imagine this would be very readable.
