Hi Charlie,

Thanks for the patch.

I'll add a slightly modified version - note that in C++ the MT_ classes have 
operator overloads, so you don't have to muck around in component math, so 
you can do:

MT_Point3 a, b;
float dist = (b - a).length().  

There is also a distance method.  This type of function really belongs in a 
maths class, but as we don't have any of those we can put it in the game
