Some time ago I tried to write 'importer' for (full) MD2 format and
then MD5 format from Id Software. I gathered quite a bit information
about it and it should not be very complicated to support these format
(especially MD2).

Unfortunatly I hadn't had time to do that plus I'm Haskell newbie but
importing and animating MD5 models in Haskell has such a appeal to me!

I really encourage you to browse through MD2 specification. It is
really straightforward and ready to be rendered "out-of-the-box".
Plus many 3D software have exporter to MD2.
