Introduction to interacting with the N Solver
=============================================

In order to create an N cloth object that can interact with the Nucleus solver, 
your object will need to own a MnCloth, which represents the underlying
N cloth and its data.
your node will also need the following 6 attributes:

ATTR                Type        Description
startState          kNObject    initial state of your N object
currentState        kNObject    current state of your N object
currentTime         Time        connection to the current time
inputGeom           kMesh       input mesh       

inputGeom and currentTime are self explanatory.

A connection is to be made from the nucleus solver's outputObjects attribute to 
the nextState attribute of your node.  Also, you need to connect the currentState
and startState attributes of your node to the inputActive and inputActiveStart attributes
on the solver node respectively.

Once these connections are made, the normal sequence of events is the following:

The refresh will trigger a pull on the output mesh attribute.  At this your node will
pull on the nextState attribute, triggering a solve from the solver.  Depending on the current
time, the solver will trigger pulls on either the currentState or startState attributes of your
node.  If the startState is pulled on, you need to initialize the MnCloth which you node
owns from the input geometry.  Once this is done and the data passed back to the solver,
a solve will occur, and the solver will automatically update your MnCloth behind the scenes.

At this point you may extract the results of the solve via methods on the MnCloth and apply it
to the output mesh.

Below is a script that show how to test this node:

//side by side.  One is a default nCloth object, the other is a cloth
//object created by our plugin.
