I did a lot of mouse interaction stuff in gem, although only 2d, because
3d needs depth test, which I avoided until now. but yes, it is always a
lot of translations. I have some objects that do mouseover detection on
circles and rectangles and options to drag them around whithout. I think
pdmtl has some of that, too(?).
basically these are separate objects that can be hooked up to shapesand
control the interaction. do you want me to post them?
