The real reason we wanted to use dirac is because our team-leader wanted to
try to parallelize the process (which we never got to).  I'm still not sure
why he didn't want to go straight to  schroedinger for that.  I couldn't
find any information on nut, or play one which is why I tried avi.  Thanks
for all of your help;  After this project I am on to my real field, analog
hardware design.

I'm not real sure about the camera, or what there is to say about our
client's filming procedures unfortunately.  We haven't been in touch with
them very much.
