Hi Monis,


working like the old one?
I have a really cool script that renders a POV-ray sweep alogn a path 
that uses this. 
It will work in 2.0, or I will have to keep 1.2 around. :-)

Anyway, I cannot spare time right now to write PDB's :-( 
(I had done it once, and might do again), but I will see if I can send 
you a more detailed e-mail on the process soon.
