This all sounds extremely, extremely cool.  Thanks for all the effort
you've put into this.

I have a couple of questions:

Will these still be in separate .ac files, so that they can be replaced
if desired?  As I learn blender, one thing I've wanted to do (and make
available to others) is make distinctive control towers that look like
the ones at specific airports, e.g.

The database that came with 0.9.4 had taxiways mainly just for big
airports.  Will this updated database have them for many smaller
airports as well?  I ask because I've been using David Luff's
TaxiDraw to make taxiways for the smaller airports in the default
area in hopes of contributing that work; but if that's not useful,
I'll do something else.

Thanks very much again; I'm really looking forward to the new scenery.
