Ok, I just met him. Things *are* FPS-oriented 'cause that's what he
knows, but much (at least in the "tools" area) is at least usable for 3d
graphics in general.
I think I can write a summary of what we talked etc later today. It was
not as productive as a "look at the new version of X - what do you
like/miss?" discussion over a longer time and there's few surprising
things, but it was IMO nevertheless worth it.
Well, as I said, details are coming later ;)

I think some summarizing should happen, especially if the list turns out
to have a highish volume *cough*, but that'll propably be some informal
