Holy Priest "Custom" Role

I'm finding the "Custom" role option very difficult to use for Holy Priests - it's quite difficult to figure out what values I should put in, even though I know my usual "cast sequence" in a variety of different situations.

The default "Holy - Raid" cast list of PoM, CoH, FH, FH, PoH, CoH, FH, FH, PoH is not bad, but is really for when the raid is taking heavy damage only - in most raid healing situations I wouldn't use this cast list, so I really need to create a custom role to get accurate results.  When I clicked "Custom" the first time, I expected to see a way to create my own "cast list", but didn't find anything so simple.

I am wondering if there is a possibility of adding this in the future, for the somewhat less mathematical users amongst us :/  Otherwise, is there a guide somewhere of how to figure out what values to put in the Custom Role to reflect our usual cast list?

Thanks for your consideration.

Well the custom healing mode currently just assumes that you have an arbitrary rotation which has the casts you provided being used, and you use a SoL every chance you get (assuming your quota of flash heals hasn't been hit yet). One way of populating values for this is to just look at a WWS/WMO/WOL of a recent raid you've done and plug in relative frequencies of your spellcasts from there (taking care to account for multi-target casts correctly.
