I think the problem is that even a statistically significant result can 
be arbitrarily bad (e.g. if a major regression is checked in). It does 
seem like it would be really nice to have the option of viewing with a 
scale such that the maximum displayed is something like say 2 standard 
deviations above the mean of displayed results.
