    Never heard it put quite that way, interesting. Of course, the real difficulty is getting access to the REPL...

    On a semi-related topic, it's kind of a shame the LWSDK doesn't provide better hooks to override/augment the actual LWO & LWS (really, all) file load/save access mechanisms themselves. Not only would that enable adding proper VCS-type functionality, as well as CMS-type hooks, but would also offer unique capabilities in scenarios like yours (having ability to bind/access various "meta-scene" LWS's, LWS templates, and other files "around" access to the main LWS, as well as potentially even building/assembling the LWS loaded "on the fly"). Alas.

    Still, given what the SDK does provide, that all sounds extremely useful!

    Updated demo content: http://home.kpn.nl/vincentmesman/Legato_demo.zip
    All scenes use the new plugin file format of build 20-FEB-2020.

    IKarm_source.lws has 1 action for the arm, and 2 poses for the hand.

    To apply these markerregions in another scene:

    1 - Open scene IKarm_target.lws
    2 - Press F7 to open Config
    3a - Remove Meshes/Bones/Lights/Cameras from the filter settings
    3b - Verify "Keys", "TextTracks", "Poses" are enabled (being processed), disable "Blocks" and "MarkerRegions"
    3c - Specify your screen dimensions (default: 1920x1080 16:9), then click "Set Layout Now"
    4 - Press F7 again to close Config
    5 - Set current frame to #50
    6 - Verify that the Library file matches the path on your system
    7 - Click the small "E" button to import envelope data of that Library file
    8a - Select 'm' in the 'M','R','m','r','S','T' selector to list available Poses
    8b - Or select "r" in that same markerregion type selector to list available Actions
    9 - Select any of the available Poses or Actions and press 'T' on your keyboard to Transfer the external envelope data to the arm in this scene
    10 - Use the Spline type feature (right side of the interface to define a TCB Spline with T=1.0 to a selected frame range or the current frame for slow-in/out
