      Hi Peter,

      Reusing animation instances with different elements is not currently
      supported, but will be in a future release.

It seems to me that rather than create a new animation object every time I add something, I should be able to just create one and re-apply it to each new element that is created. Why keep recreating an Animation object when it's doing the same thing over and over again?
