I'll probably do that, I could use some of the other 2.0 stuff.

Sorta. It's certainly free for anyone to download, but it's only usable
if you own a copy of "Microsoft 3D Movie Maker" (which has been out of
print for years).
It's also supposed to be GPL'd, but I haven't bothered uploading the
source yet. (There's only a small community of people interested in it,
and I'm the only C++ programmer among them). If you happen to have a
copy of this obscure 9-year-old game lying around, you can grab my
project here: http://v3dmm.com/downloads/v3dmm_011.exe
I've considered writing a PhysFS-based mini-unarchiver, for testing
physfs (in connection with my barely-started PhysFS-Python binding),
I'll see if I can get time to do that.
