I don't think a hidable 0th bar is the right solution. It would be better to
have the number of the starting bar configurable so one can start at bar -2
and sees the bar in the window. Still someone would have to tell hydrogen to
start playing on bar 1...


There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the 
Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be 
replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
