Default Re: naming the materials

Alas, it works, but within AC3D only!
In the exported files (all formats I tried so far) the materials were still named "acmat0, 1, 2...".

Still worse, once materials are renamed those nefarious "acmatX" disappear entirely from the .ac file, thus there seems to be no easy way to build a cross-reference table automatically - unless the exporters number the mats progressively after their order in the .ac file; in that case contriving a simple prog to build the x-ref table and rename them in the .obj shouldn't really take long.

As soon as I can (right now I'm expected to take care of my boring Monday stuff) I'm going to check that last possibility and let you know.
