Comment (by kevinwhoffman):

 I agree with @jb510. @mapk has done an impressive job addressing most of
 the feedback, so let me first say thanks for the hard work and being open
 to changes. You've addressed almost every point of concern within the
 bounds of a flexible-height slider. The question still remains whether a
 flexible-height slider is a better format than a vertical stack of
 screenshots where none of these issues are a concern and the interface is
 drastically simpler and more intuitive.

 > I want to explore every possible solution within a single page view, so
 please review the mockups below.

 This, to me, is the crux of the problem. It appears we are not seeking the
 best way to present variable-height screenshots with captions. Rather we
 are seeking the best way to do so within the ''self-imposed limitations of
 a one-page layout''. Despite overwhelming community feedback, concerns
 from the design team, and concerns expressed in this ticket, we continue
 down this path.

 I understand this was the task assigned at last week's meeting, and again
 I appreciate @mapk's work. It's a step forward for this slider approach,
 but I remain unconvinced that it's a step in the right direction.
