The way I see it, animations (gfx data) and animators (describing a
position in an animation) should remain separated. The reason is
simple: to avoid having x copies of the same gfx when there are x
characters with the same shape on the screen (that was the case in 0.3
- and its not good). I think the code in road_to_0-4 makes a good
basis, but of course there is still room for improvements and your
enhancements are welcome.
