I've been too busy with homework to really keep up on everything, so I
haven't heard all about the limitations of splines in 3.5, but I have a
question about how you would accomplish this.  How would you keep the
motion at a constant speed?  Splines generally do not have a constant
velocity vector along them.  Wouldn't a cubic spline make the walk/run
speed up and slow down?  Would the character go from a walk to a run as
it speeds up?
