  I don't know if the balloon-padding interface changes the size of the box or 
tries to just shift it around on the page; I haven't played with the balloon 
feature myself.
  Perhaps some people would prefer the line connecting to the text to go away 
when there is no text and/or have an option for wether it is present or not. 
Some people might want just the box, and some people might want a line to 
blank space for writing on later. What does everyone else think?
