A Good Feather Falling Effect?

I'm trying to make an illustrator image of a feather fall like a feather. I've kinda figured it out using manual keyframing but was wondering if there was an expression-tastic or particular way to do this?

Bonus Question: What does the third value of wiggle do? [ie: wiggle(x,y,z); "z"]. I often never use it but just noticed it existed, it doesn't seem to really change anything as far as I can tell either. Hmmm.....

there is a tutorial or artical floating around, it may even be here on the cow, where you can use shatter to create a falling leaf. I played around with it and got a fairly good looking result.

Creating a falling leaf effect by Dan Ebberts:

is cool, but a little tricky, but it's where I'd start.

From Roland R. Kahlenberg's article here:
http://www.creativecow.net/articles/kahlenberg_roland/expressions/index.htm...

The wiggle Expression requires three parameters to make it work. The first parameter tells AE how frequent you want it to kick in, the second affects the variation of the effect, and the third tells AE when in time you want it to work.

Though I'm not too clear on what that's supposed to mean.

Hi all --

I've got the expression code from the site listed above, but not sure how to get the leaf to stop falling. Any ideas?
