results of a conversation between Eric Martz, Frieda Reichsman, and
Tim Driscoll:

Frieda:
Mouse action: while a script is executing, hold down mouse to
rotate, zoom, etc--any mouse operation is possible while script
execution waits until mouse is released. This is currently the way
Chime works on Mac but not on Windows.

Tim:
I will submit this as a feature request. would you consider this as
an option, if possible, maybe something controllable by an applet
param and script command? or do you want the default behavior
changed?

Eric:
In further thinking, it occured to us that this enables users to rotate
structures during script execution, ending up with the wrong
perspective in a tutorial. Frieda thinks people won't mess with
tutorials at least in first viewing. She's probably right.

I don't feel strongly about this proposed behavior or default, and in
any case deem it low priority.
