I would love to learn Volity and perhaps develop these UI files to
implement such changes. It seems rather open, if the UI is 'scripted'
by a UI file like you make it sound... Are there any nice off-site
tutorials that you recommend?

Of course, in my spare time away from Flash animation, I mean. ;p

I really don't think it should slow down _that_ much. :)

Anyway, as Zarf wrote, these are good ideas; consider them Noted. (And
I should note that anyone willing to learn a bit about Volity can
attempt to write an alternate UI file that will work with Gamut...)
