That looks good.
Let me know if you want it Beta tested. ;-)

Sure Stephen, I will be happy if you try and test it. Bug reports, but also
comments and proposals for amelioration are welcome.

Just one thing, I have not tested it with windows. If little changes are
required, I am ready to incorporate them so that it works for you on windows.
But you will have to help me on this point ( I have no windows machine neither
at work or at home ).

Laurent.

If you can compile it for Windoze I would be willing and happy to test 
it. I can't help with that but I am good at breaking things. ;)

This is Python code, so there is nothing to compile.  The only requirement is to
install the required python modules used, as indicated in the doc.

Python is os independent, so it could work. But maybe I have not been careful
and I called some Linux specific command at some places. This should require
only very minor adjustments I guess. But I admit I have no real experience on

Okay, I use Blender and Poser so there is a good chance I will be able 
to run it on my machine.
