I'm rendering a scene with megapov and mechsim.  The idea was to use mechsim to
drop some marbles (masses) into a bowl so that they settle naturally.  I don't
actually need the animation, just the last last position after all the masses
are settled in place.  I've looked at save_file and load_file but really don't
understand what they are saving.  Is there any way to get the mass vector
locations so that I can use them in my final scene render without having to run
the mechsim every time?
