Dear Jonathan,

Thank you for your proposal - I was aware of this option as it is used in some of the examples. However, since the processing we do after the initial G4 energy deposition is pretty involved, we designed our framework such that the G4 event data is just one of the inputs to the simulation chain. Thus, I fear, it'll be not simple to change the structure such that we can call all other routines from "within" the Geant4 event generation.

I'm not sure if this is taken into account for any future development of Geant4 (or for the GeantV project) but I think it would be beneficial to have some better means to use Geant4 "as a library" for other frameworks rather than requiring to use Geant4 as the main program while adding additional functionality.

Best regards, Simon
