It seems to me that it would require an external. My company is preping a
major update to Shade, and there's this big selection of sky box / pano
types it supports that Id otherwise export to Quicktime VR (I hate the fact
that we have to warn Mac users to install the older Quicktime to export to
Quicktime VR...).

I guess a skybox stack type would be totally unreasonable - then stacks
would be like infinite onions - very Lewis Carroll :-)
