Boy, that takes me back. If you don't feed back the integral you'll end up
with an output which has a steady-state offset error against the control
point (unless the forward gain is infinite, and it never is). I don't know
if that matters here, but it cannot be good.

If you feed back the integral of the error then it introduces the
possibility of instability. Probably in this application you can just
overdamp the thing to avoid that. It'll make it slower to respond to
changes in the setpoint.
