I love this idea.... it would be great for all us "non-swimmers" who 
haven't dived into VOP's yet.  (I've waded into the "pool" many times 
but always get that drowning feeling and have to get out).

One suggestion... don't chuck any existing shaders before they've 
positively been replaced by the VOP based ones.
