Any chance of improving the scallop calculator to include corner radius tools with a taper wall calculation?

Just to clarify. Do you want to calculate scallop for Tapered Bull-Nose cutters?

Or just regular Ball-nose cutter, but machining a tapered wall?

I was thinking a regular straight corner radius end mill like a .250 diameter end mill with a .015 diameter corner radius milling a drafted pocket wall. I realize I can just use the existing calculator and just calculate the .015 radius as a .030 diameter end mill but it doesn't take into consideration the wall draft just a straight floor cut. Also is there a way to stop the darn circle/ramp and scallop calculator from closing when I accidentally hit enter instead of tab to go to the next fill in box . Maybe it's just me but I seem to do that all the time.
All minor stuff but I think that would improve an already great product.
