FlightGear's model loader (part of plib) supports many different file
formats. The best supported is currently AC3D (.ac) format, which is
native to that shareware modeller (www.ac3d.org) and well-supported in
Blender by a Python export script.
This particular extension, .wrl, indicates a VRML file. Maybe we
should fix the docs to use .ac instead.

Almost all 3D modelling programs allow you to associate "names" with
object sub-parts. These names then appear in the XML content that
describes the animation.
