[Sidefx-houdini-list] Script Solver reading inactive objects

Hi everyone,

I wanted to optimize a simulation that reads some information outside of 
dop. I thought about using a script solver with python to avoid using 
expressions that are called three times for example on a Motion Dop when 
it's a vector. I realized it gives a lot of potential for a clean way to 
set any data on dop objects but then I saw the script solver doesn't run 
when objects are not active. I'm going to do an RFE to let the script 
solver run anytime and let the user read the active state and decide 
what he wants.

My question is, will it be really faster to use Python this way instead 
of different Motion Dop or Modify Data Dop, and is there a reason why we 
don't want to run the solver on inactive objects?

Thanks for your feedbacks.
