Question "sport shift" transmissions?

Hey,

You know how some cars have a "sport shift" transmission? It allows you to use full auto tranny, but there's an optional "sport shift" mode. When you put the shift knob into drive mode, you just move it over for "sport" mode. An example is the Mazda 3. I guess you just tap the shift knob up or down to "upshift" and "downshift".

Well, has anyone driven a car with this type of tranny? If so, what's it like? And what's the purpose? Is it just for fun, so auto tranny drivers can *feel* like they're shifting? Suppose you didn't upshift; would it automatically do so?

thx.
