( I posted this message in the plugin developers forum, but there doesn't seem to be much activity there. I hope that it is OK to double-post).

I can't seem to find any reference to retrieving a list of "parts" from an object, and being able to create/delete them from within a plug-in. The only reference I could find to "parts" is via the polTag function with the LWPTAG_PART tag ID.

I would like to...
- Retrieve a list of the "parts" in the object
- Scan the polygons to see what polys are in what parts
- Assign polygons to parts
- Create Parts (from within the plug-in)
- Delete Parts (from within the plug-in)

Is this possible with the LW API?

There doesn't seem to be, if Lscript is anything to go by. Hopefully the dev team is looking into this (a lot of them are ex plugin writers themselves, so they know the shortcomings very well i expect :) )
