Bah. Now that Mathias considers it a good idea ... I've loaded a few objects
from $FG_ROOT/Models/Airport/ into Blender and, yes, some of them could use
that method, too: tacan.ac, tower.ac, radar.ac do also have detailed pylons
that could be made hot transparent, and replaced by a simpler structure for
intersection tests. There may be some more in the object db, but most objects
in CVS are already quite simple, so there wouldn't be much performance gain
to expect. (cow.ac ? :-)
