[Sidefx-houdini-list] Take related channel reference

Ideally I'd like to be able to do it on the fly, 
I have an object with a certain material on it in take1 and need to be able to reference parameters from that material in take2.

Do you need to do this on the fly or is it just a simple problem of 
copying channels out of the take? I had come accross a problem where in 
one scene I had a character like: /obj/animationPipeline/joe and I 
wanted to transfer elements of his animation from a take to another 
scene  onto /obj/mike. Joe and Mike being the exact same asset. The 
easiest way to do it was to save out a preset rather than a take because 
you can't rename the contents of a take or re-route them to fit a 
slightly different scene structure. Grr...

Cheers
