I've had mixed results with the blender osgexport plugin, it doesn't  
appear to export animation constraints (i.e. "copy rotation from").  
It also seems to forget local coordinate systems occasionally. More  
importantly I don't think it is being maintained any more. If  
something like collada is being maintained, and is a standard  
supported by many tools it would be a better choice for me.

Robert: What should we expect from the collada import (or from other  
paths into OSG)? Obviously we'd need to investigate collada export  
from a modeling tool separately.

Thanks very much--
