Yes!  :-)

I know Jan Walter, one of the developers at mental images, and he showed 
me some very cool things it's capable of.  I'm just now starting to get 
back to writing mr shaders and am looking at mental mill as not only 
only a good prototyping environment, but a good teaching tool as well.

If you have questions, you should contact Jan (I don't jave Jan's mi 
email handy, will look it up).  He'd be happy to answer questions.  Oh, 
and talk to Bart Gawboy as well bart at mental.com, he's in LA.
