The objects wire and totally independant of the graphical
representation. I.e, you can see the object design and their gfx as two
different things. Of course, both will be needed when you'll want to
glue the gfx on the wire representation. But I can still get some job
done (animation editing, and even character editing, without any wire
placement however) to amuse our gfx guys that are waiting some tools
since a loooong time! :)

Awright! I'll concentrate on that then.
