The other useful aspect of "Move Scene" is that you dont have to remember
where or what version of an object or surface you used in a particular
scene. I don't miss the "oops I forgot this one object" feeling when you're
on a dealine to finish a job. Although I love the content directory it
doesn't remember which objects to include in your scene, just where they
"should" be if you remembered to put them there. Just a thought.
