    flip() is taking about 16ms. doTwinkle() (with animode=0) is taking 30-45ms (depending on animation modes - mo=1 is the worst, mo=2 is only a little better) with 5 LEDs.

    That means 3ms + 6~9ms per pixel, which is too slow for a string of 10-12 pixels...

    Changing from this.blah (with the longer variable names) only saved a few milliseconds per run.

    I'm sort of wondering what it is that I'm doing that's taking the time. Would reworking it to use map() in dotwinkle() be faster? Er, can I even do that? Maybe I can't...
