I think I would prefer the dial to send relative information as
to what direction it's turning, so that you can have more than
127 different values controlled by one knob. It's not exceedingly
difficult to take a wrapping controller and make it functionally
the same, but if the encoder just stops at 0 and 127, it makes
that impossible. I do agree, though, that the wrapping doesn't
seem like a very good idea.
