I upgraded my hypertoons module at

I'm down to just two modules, plus VPython of course.  This still has those
couple 2.4 idioms.

Went from 16 scenarios to 29!

I've GOT to find those stereo glasses.


Creates a network of VPython animations connected through key
frames, with a random selection at each frame.  Like a network
of subway tunnels, and a choice of where to go next at each
station (tunnel = scenario, nodelist = options of where to go
next i.e. any scenario starting with current key frame.

The theme of this hypertoon is Buckminster Fuller's concentric
hierarchy of polyhedra, complete with jitterbug transformation
and allusions to the CCP.
