DAMN! I'm Jealous! Why aren't there more cool rigs like this for XSI??

I took at a look at your rig and found a feature I've been trying to do myself. I was wondering first of all how you did the pole vector-less knees. I use the cgtoolkit method. Is this similar? I'd like to know how you made the knee either follow the foot or stay. The most common complaint I've had about this setup is the inability to rotate the foot and knee individually without counter-animating, so this solves it all.
