[osg-users] RenderingHint vs binNumber(RenderBinDetails)

OK, but why introducing a _renderingHint member variable not used and 
therefore confusing (_binNum is the one taken into account, once again if 
I'm correct..) ??

It's not really exclusively an implementation matter : those member 
variables are both clearly saved in the .osg format - readable format highly 
appreciable to infer problem origins when encountered with a complex 
scene -. A newcomer examining his scene graph naturally infer they both have 
a different implication on rendering order...

Anyway thanks for clearing that : binNumber is the important data.
