Graphic effects parms

I tried it after I saw your note.  This parameter doesn't appear to affect
anything in the resulting effect that I can see.

Unrelated (but important to me): the effect of the spread parameter for
innerglow when set to "edge" needs to be updated, as it's currently
backwards.  Increasing the spread value causes the effect to move outwards
from the object, instead of inwards.  The RunRev guys probably overlooked
this since spread often produces an outward effect, but it's annoying.
