How is it working together with GLSL? I feel that probably a even bigger 
change is on the way which would unify this also. For now it is working 
well but as soon as I switch to GLSL my Alphas are not there anymore for 

Where is the "Collision" flag from the Face Textures is handled? I think 
it can be usefull to have Collision by Face.

I think you would also remove Texture Face as option from the Shading in 
the Property Shelf?

Beside this and my doubts about the time when to incorporate this (see 
below) I think your work is very valuable and simplifies things.

I am still a bit sceptic and feel that it would be fit better in a 2.6 
Version, especially as there are bigger changes in the materials 
proposed for these versions. So my opinion: Wait. And then do a system 
which serves all cases well: Add material options with all features you 
can use in rendering, then when you start the Gameengine the materials 
will be shown as good as the actual graphic card can handle. All automatic.

Beside this I would also like to have a lazy mode with more than one 
texture on a object in GLSL mode.
