and if someone thought that would be something extraordinary, i just thought 
to mention that that sort of things seem to be done in Blender already .. 
like the internal Library append code changes global vars, at least the one 
for the open file, while the other blend is read, and then restores the one 
that the user actually is working on. 

and now in baking i think we just modify the global current frame, again 
restoring it after the operation.

so i hope no one ever tries to make Blender multithreading :)

seems good .. in py they should probably be optional boolean keyword 
arguments, so one could do:

 ob2 = ob1.duplicate(material=True, ipo=True) .. or something, or if they 
default to True, ob2 = ob1.duplicate(texture=False)

thanks for good input on a matter you dont care about, and i guess bf-python 
can sort out the rest of this :)
