Formats like halflife FGD allow composition of new entity types from basic 
components. The 1.5 entity module uses compositions of basic components in 
order to display existing entities - but the compositions for each entity type 
is hardcoded. It would simplify adding support for visualisation of new entity 
types (in new games and mods) if these compositions could be defined in a data 
file instead of in code.
