No. I dismissed ObjectMerge as you need to specify the number of
objects. I don't a priori know the list of objects since the artist
chooses this via the Mantra ROP's visibility list.
Maybe though, instead of 1 ObjectMerge with N objects specified, perhaps
I could use N ObjectMerges. Not by laying them down though, but by
replicating and stamping the object locations via a Copy SOP. What I'd
need then is to create an N-point template with a string point attribute
corresponding to the fully-qualified path of each object in the Mantra
Okay, off to find out how to expand an object list ...
