I was actually looking at this a little closer and it seems that other than the 
top layout part, most of the panel display IS controlled by fairly standard 
hscipt. May just need to rewrite the general layout than copy and paste the 
specifics... looks like it would work...

Subject: [Sidefx-houdini-list] Partial Desktop Sourcing

I have looked through the list mails and odforce and can't seem to find anything 

on this, but vaguely remember some discussion on it a while back, I could be 
missing something obvious but...

Many Times I have had custom desktop setup, some with floating panes etc... Is 
there any way to source a partial smoo.desk ? So lets sat in the case of a 
floating pane attatched to a desktop setup, i isolated that portion  into a 
smoo.desk snippet of some sort that could re-build that single floater on 
sourcing.  The syntax in these file are so convenient and compact, it seems to 
be a bit of a waste to have to recreate a floater or other element via 
hython/hscript  when it exists so cleanly. I have run into this situation many 
times building custom panes/desktops for specific uses and would save a bit of 
time. Anyone know a way this is possible?
