I haven't looked at Chipp's, so I can't say for sure. But the MC way is 
pretty easy -- just add another 2-line set of coordinates to the 
"points" list for each new object. You can have an unlimited number of 
lines. If you use a script like the MC example to loop through all your 
images, the number of lines and their points will get calculated 
automatically each time the handler runs; you won't even have to do the 
math. Instead of "repeat with i = 1 to 3" you would use "repeat with i = 
1 to the number of images".

This technique is also very fast.
