Mel: Parenting shape nodes to new parents (ie polyMesh to Joint)

Was asked about combining a polySphere/nurbsSphere to a joint, so selecting the sphere still selects the joint.

Its fairly simple actually, its the same way as you would combine two nurbs curves under one transform node (to get more complex/detailed control objects).

string $parent="joint1"; string $shape="pSphereShape1"; parent -add -shape $shape $parent;
As simple as!
