I'll take a look when I get to this.

Don't know yet. Output and input/output structures are a chunk of
memory, a binary. There's of course no way in Erlang to know the size

Ok, I'll go with that. It can be made a driver later on, if needed.
How do you make this work as a bundled app? Run erlang like Wings3D
does and then fork off the c-node?
