at least from my point it sounds good and resonable. These are features really 
missing and will not only keep FlightGear up to date aganinst the commercial 
sims- it will make it better.

But I wonder how long you need for all this, and what happens to all the other 
things you announced? Shadows, shader library...
I know you are the only one in the moment beside Till Busch and Stuart ??? who 
are working on the OSG-part of FlightGear.
Don't understand me wrong: these changes you want to do are important, so we 
can be very lucky having someone like you working on that.

Yes, that are rhings very important. So from my point of view as mostly user 
and 3d-modeller there is nothing against as long the perfomance doesen't 
decrease too much.
