What exactly is Maya Fusion?  I'm guessing a compositor based on google
hits, but it isn't actually listed on Alias' web site.  I would have
assumed it was an intregrated component (i.e. Composer integrated into
Maya), but then why would it require a seperate dongle?

I'd double check that everything will continue to work correctly, like
the SDI cards, etc.
