The argument is moot.
It's like it is with bike locks. Getting a better one does not guarantee that your bike won't get stolen, but it does help! And a 100% security is always unattainable.
I am still not sure I understand using 4x4 matrices to do transforms in three space. I can write the code though (slowly).
Because a 3 dimensional object can be translated by a linear operation in 4 dimensional space. Similar to how you are able to move (the projection) of a 2D shape by moving it along an arbitrary third axis pointing out of the shape's plane. This doesn't sound fundamentally very difficult for me. Now group theory on the other hand... I guess it depends on how your brain works. I have a lot less trouble with geometry than with more abstract maths.
I figure that if I feel a need to consult my old BioChem text to figure out just what that ingredient is, I shouldn't be eating it.

Right now, all we have the shuttle
No, you don't
