seems like you are talking about the Graphical Environment for Max (Gem 
pre 1997 or something) ;-)

i am not really sure how we should handle this efficiently in both terms 
of performance AND coding-time; it should be fairly easy to build a list 
of objects involved into a render-chain; but it gets tough when it comes 
to the data. what about pixes ?

now it's me who ist jsut thinking aloud.
