Does what is says and nothing else - that's how its supposed to be. If you ever plan on adding any features, maybe add easings (although it is not to hard your code, but some users might find that option useful).

Great simple plugin. The only thing missing is an "offset" option for where the page scrolls to when you click an anchor link.
