which puts me back all the way back at the beginning....  thats what I was 
writing for WOW.  The hand, wrist, and arm are locked in place, and the 
forearm rotates.  I need a drink.  Margaritas anyone?  ::smile::

Of course, people can turn doorknobs in different ways. So there may 
be exceptions to this depending on one's anatomy...

But I personally write turning a doorknob as a Rotisserie Movement, 
because even though the wrist may be flexed because the hand is 
holding the doorknob, the movement is not from the wrist joint (when 
I do it anyway). The wrist joint when I do it, is locked in its 
position, and the wrist joint itself remains solid, while the 
Rotisserie Movement occurs...

So if the Rotisserie pole is bent at the end, it is still a solid 
pole, because the wrist is locked. The whole arm-wrist-hand as a 
unit, rotates to turn the doorknob...
