Thanks for the info, Peter! I will look for a copy at VWBPE. Much
appreciated! I am hunting a commercial version for our sim, and
haven't found anything that does what I want, so I appreciate these
tips. - Lexi

Not sure how robust it is but I will probably be using it for VWBPE again so will dust it down again shortly. Bits of it (not shared media afaik) also run on OpenSim.
