For what it's worth, here's an example of posable mesh in POV-Ray.
http://www.oyonale.com/modeles.php?lang=en&page=55
The demo file contains a small macro that can be used to rotate and animate 
the legs. I just had to copy the coordinates of the origin point (center of 
rotation) for each leg part from the original model and then reorganise the 
leg's hierarchy in POV-Ray.
