that's not too dissimilar from what I was thinking before, but I didn't 
have the stomach to write it.. but here's goes.

it would be great if could take a shop and have a VOP network generated 
from it automagically, if it came across something that couldn't be 
replicated in a VOP then it would be placed in a scriptVOP.

then you would be able to go back and forth and spread the wealth. it 
would be a great way to learn about scripting and VOPing
