Mathias has been working on a toolkit that provides a lot of the "plumbing" required for a HLA client, in a much nicer package. This toolkit, called SimKit, would allow us to ditch most or all of the SimGear HLA code. Note that, like the current HLA dependency (OpenRTI), this is completely optional and only required if one is compiling with the ENABLE_RTI CMake option.
Initially, this is going to be used to help with Decoupling the AI Traffic System. In the mid-term, the idea is to use HLA to split off the rendering/simulation loops.
