I have continued to manually adjust those points and then realized that 
because I know the height of each row of the grid, and the rope is just 
a bunch of connected bezier splines, I should--in theory--be able to 
calculate the exact position of the rope for each connection.

But I think tweaking by hand was faster than algebra.

I really wanted an obvious spotlight on the flag, and decided that a 
hollow cone to fill with a media was better than trying to make it work 
as atmospheric media
