	Err... Sorry for pulling your leg a little longer, but how about if
using quaternions? I mean, if I *do* want to express the rotation in
terms of yaw, pitch and roll (for simplicity in terms of user input),
I'm thinking I could encode these three rotations into three
quaternions, multiply them all, and compose a rotation matrix based on
the result quaternion - would that be a reasonable approach ?

Many thanks,
