I'm the guy that presented the fluids demo at Siggraph.  I don't claim
to be an expert, but I'm pretty adept at using the tool.  If you have
any questions, I'd be more than willing to help out.

I've had difficulties before getting the fluid simulator to play nice
with obstacles controlled with an armature.  Things may have changed
recently, but I'm not aware of any that relate to that.  I do know of a
couple work-arounds, but it really depends on the level detail you need
and how close your shots are.

Take care.
