If you get the chance (assuming you haven't already) take some time to
play around with playerv and/or playerjoy. See what parts of those meet
our needs, and what parts don't. That'll help me out in designing an
application. And if it turns out that those two meet our needs, then I'll
move on to some other area that needs work done.

When you get a working rpm/srpm let me know :) I've been wanting to play
around with gazebo to get a feel for how it works, but I can't get it
compiled on my system.
