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
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.
