[x3d-public] Playback controller

I have an hour's worth of platform orientation data that I can play back with a TimeSensor. I'd like to give the viewer a slider to be able to "scrub" through the data.

I can route in a PlaneSensor to control the OrientationInterpolators, but when the PlaneSensor is not active the TimeSensor resumes with its value not being changed.

What I'd like to do is to route a value into a 'set_fraction' field of TimeSensor, but that is not in the X3D specification.

Are there any other ideas on how to accomplish this? (I'd think that this would be a common use case: basically a video playback controller for any sort of time dependent data.)
