Hi Roger. 

This could be extremely useful for a project I have been contemplating for some time. I wanted to make a conference scheduling app complete with visual maps of buildings and rooms and such. The maps would be interactive, so that I could click on a room and get the record of that room, such as the schedule and vacancy status. 

If you think this would be possible, I would be willing to donate some money toward your development of the object. Let me know if you think what I am trying to do is possible with your Scrolling Group object.
