  No - avatar motion, gestures, animation from a non-viewer and non-SL 
source... probably chat, possibly lookat and touch.  Heck, I'd love to 
get some of the old "avatar puppetry" stuff involved, but that'll be 
overkill for this use.  If all I was interested in was control, I'd use 
libopenmetaverse, but there will be a real person watching their avatar 
interact with SL, just not using traditional controls.
