How about just a *simple* human male figure (not posable, not super-realistic,
no triangle meshes, and only one color)? Not exactly what you have in mind(!),
but it would be a good stand-in or 'avatar' for giving scenes some interest and
scale reference.

I started working on such a thing several years ago--just a fast-rendering CSG
construction--but never got around to posting it. And at the time, it looked a
wee bit...laughable  ;-)  But I've updated it since then, so it looks a bit more

The idea of making it posable had occurred to me--via a macro--but the sheer
*number* of controls needed would make the macro almost impossible to deal with.
So it's simply a static figure.

Just wondering if that would serve a useful purpose.
