Creates and sets up a solver for the given character.

To solve a skeleton, the bones of the skeleton must be added to a solver. Typically a solver is created for each character and all the bones of each character are added to the solver that represents that character. When the solve command is executed, a solver is automatically created for any characters in the scene with none of its bones already in a solver. This is done as a convenience to the user so they do not need to create and setup solvers themselves. This command allows the auto-creation of a solver to be performed explicitly.
