Randomization

Nice little script!

Some sort of randomization options would be nice. To be able to select multiple edge sets and randomize the streak profile and depth for each one.

There's a future for this one, keep it up!

Nice script, however I would

Nice script, however I would prefer it as a macro(you could use something like the mouseTrack function to specify width/depth), and then only have the rollout when you want to change the curves(might be troublesome to get the width/depth values without the curveControl open though :\). Running the script each time you wanted to use it would become tedious and a waste of time, a macro which used the mouse position would allow you to use it a lot more efficiently.
