Oh, so the amplitude of the bobbing fades out?
Yes, from about 400 (Edit: it's 256) move speed (the calculated movement speed, not the Speed attribute) it begins to peter out, reaching half amplitude at double that speed and then asymptotically approaching zero the faster you move.

having everything onscreen flicker back and forth randomly
As a result of the above, this isn't random, it ends up being more of a visual vibration, no worse than what your weapon hand will already be doing at those speeds, and less extreme than switching to third person where the animation itself moves the camera left and right at a fixed rate.

What I will do though is make the peak amplitude speed configurable, so if 400 is still too much (or not enough) everyone can adjust it themselves to whatever value they want.
Never attribute to bad code, that which can be adequately explained with clever hacks

Didn't think I would like this, but it actually looks great. Makes the game look a lot more modern somehow. Plz merge nao!

So I wasn't crazy, it's actually a good idea! Although I agree on the fact that it should be disabled as per standard settings, for people who could feel sick.
