[Bf-committers] Fully qualified names for channels in actions?

I guess you still did not quite understand me. Thats why i uploaded a
little example . In this scene you have three objects. Every object
has it's own action and it works well. But for some animations it could
be very useful to store that animation of all three objects in one
action. Otherwise you will need 3 actions for 3 objects and that also
inside the NLA. Combining the three actions seams to be is impossible.
Would be nice that someone could use one action for multiple objects
without the need of an armature, like in the second example , but
without an armature.
