I was watching the 6 legged pod tut and was wondering if it was practical or realistic to try and archive or preserve the "Rail" and "Scaling Rail" even after removal. An update to geometry could be made without re-creating it.

I suppose after certain operations the info would have to be discarded due to "other operation" factors ( A dialog could then say "this will destroy previous rail data"), but until that time, a ghost follows the object and can be re-animated again for use. (Am I making MoI slow and bloated?)

Any thoughts will encourage or tame my thoughts.

[EDIT] THis would also be attractive to the "Vertex bunch" as it keeps the models Maliable for some point.[EDIT]
