And the Simgear 3D animation code is all about taking those normalized values
and translating them to a representation of degrees movement.  On the surface,
this doesn't make sense to me either.

Changing this on the FlightGear end and making the other FDMs compatible is
quite a task though.  The biggest part...I think...would be fixing the ac
animations after all the FDMs were in sync.
