Actually, what it does is toggle between the last selected value and the
currently selected value -- basically like a one-step undo -- so if you
set it to 128, then moved it to 200, it will toggle back and forth
between those two values. I think this is more useful, intuitive and
flexible than the three-way toggle.

I think you're being mislead because the 'undo' state is initially set
to 255. That wasn't intended, but I was torn on whether or not to fix
it. On one hand, it's less intuitive, since it's not plainly obvious
that it works like an undo button, but on the other hand, its initial
state is immediately useful before adjusting the slider.

I'm open to suggestions though.
