Um, isn't that the hard part?  If FlightGear was all set with a clean
interface to plug multiple animation-ready aircraft models, I dare say
someone would have plugged it in already. :)

Exactly.  It seems to me like we're swimming in half-finished
implementations.  What we need really isn't another one to plug into
the mess, it's someone to *finish* the whole project and (if possible)
throw out all the old junk that isn't used anymore.
