I dunno.  I personally find no problem using my index finger on the 
switches on the faceplate.  (Although I could use one of the 3 Fatar
footswitches I've got laying around for scrolling presets also.)

Not practical at all for my rig.  

I use a Roland GP-100 controlled by a Roland FC-200 foot controller.
The same foot controller controls both of my Jammans as well as my
Eventide GTR4000 _and_ my pair of Soundsculpture Studio Swichblades.
