No, you aren't. :)

Surely you mean: "don't -share- items for this face". Not a bad idea. I just wouldn't use 'unique, because it's taken already. Perhaps 'clone, or 'share-not? :) However, once you get used to the system, you see it is quite efficient. You only have to clone sub-objects when you need to. I see if it is easy to clone heirarchys of objects then beginners will find it easier to create very memory-inefficient programs rather than learn how the system works and make efficient ones. Anton.
