Introducing a second HL library?

Re: Introducing a second library?
Hey Roland,

this is something where I'm really not so sure.

In .obj files (for example) you have to follow a fixed sequence (write 1//1 for a position and a normal). If I may exaggerate slightly, this could guide to something like 1//1//////4 ;-).

In .ply files you have to define what follows (at least I think so). Too complex in my opinion.

What I could imagine is someting like (here a quad):
4 0 1 2 3 n 0 c 16
4 0 1 2 3 n4 0 0 0 0 c4 16 16 4 16 // with Gradient Brush

But currently, I would prefer "uniqe combo's of those elements". This is something I have also seen in many computer games. It would be nice if the library would be so flexible that you could even add bones, bone weights and bone indices (in theory). But it's a wash.

Hm. I really like the hierarchical structure of the LDraw file format. Here are the ghosts: do you want an expandable high perfomance library or an expandable hierarchical library with smaller files.
