	I'd also side with kudos on Mark Story's plugins - he kept them up and did a 
great implementation(although as you likely know he's currently retired them 
from active development but AFAIK has made the source open).  As a rule of 
thumb, I'd say Houdini is a wonderful environment for massaging data of any 
kind.  Extremely flexible.

	About all I'd add on a side note is that I found the RF GUI to be an exercise 
in how to *not* to do an interface, it's a *very* buggy program, and is 
ultimately very frustrating to work with.  Unfortunately there's not a lot of 
off-the-shelf options out there, the results aren't bad.  I'm really looking 
forward to a DOPs based fluid sim.  :)
