Well, if it works even with some limitation (i mean works stable), then i'm
currently sure sure why to drop it =\ We do have some other limited but
pretty well areas in blender.

Is that glitch resolved now?

Yes, wouldn't mind :) What i meant is more like i don't think putting
core team to work on frameserver would be nice idea.

Allrighty. Side note: i think you've got one bug about sound assigned to
I've failed to figure that out, would be cool if you look into that one.
But that's
just a side node.

About addon.. Probably that's not so difficult to do, but i'm not sure if
it'll indeed
help.Maybe if we'll have some guy who're willing to improve frameserver but
be familiar with C code.. Actually don't have strong opinion here.

With best regards, Sergey Sharybin
