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 
visibility list.

Okay, off to find out how to expand an object list ...
