20 - Show only direct heals / hide HoTs

What is the enhancement in mind? How should it look and feel?
Just wondering if this would be possibly, I'm finding with this new version that I really have no desire to see what my HoTs are healing for since they are instant cast, and therefore not cancelable. I'm a big fan of keep it simple, stupid, so I tend to like my mods to show the bare minimum of information to accomplish what I want out of them, and for VH I miss just having one bar at all times, and only seeing my direct heals, not to mention my UI was built around the traditional VH, so it wasn't made for multiple bars, so when I have out multiple HoTs my VH just ends up clipping over other UI elements.

Please provide any additional information below.
Thanks for providing this great mod, just gotta say, it is one of the mods I've used the longest, been a user since the original came out years ago!

    Being a Holy Priest, I really like the multiple bars as well as seeing the HOTs, as it's very useful for deciding who I should be focusing on healing, as well as who is using the lightwells.

    When/if you limit the bars and/or only show the bar for direct heals, could you please make sure the changes are optional so that healers such as myself don't feel like we end up loosing some of the functionality we feel we've gained in the latest version.

    I can't separate the hot's from the direct heals, that Blizzard API's do not provide any information, and I've turned every stone to figure out a way to separate them, but it's not possible to do reliably. The best i can do is to simply only show the bar when you're casting a (direct) healing spell, but the bar will still show all your heals to that target, but it will come close to what you want. There's another request for limiting the number of bars, and that has always been the plan, so it will be there at some point.
