Help: Spin/Rotate follow Particle Motion

Something that I'm hoping is obvious and I'm just missing it:

How do I duplicate the Spin Axis Controls: Direction of Travel/MBlur (with or without stretch) option from Super Sprays in PFlow. I've tried and tried, but I'm missing something.

This makes the particle spin/rotate in the direction of its motion... really nice for sparks and whotnot.

I've got a few older particle systems in my library I'd love to have in PFlow form, but this is vital...
Thanks!

Its part of the Rotation Operand. Set it to Speed Follow or Speed Space Follow, whichever best suits your needs.
