It has been my experience that Euler angles are almost never a good
idea. Typically, just keeping a quaternion is more convenient.
The one time when Euler-like angles are useful, is when controlling
things from the mouse (like a first-person camera) where you can map the
controller input directly to Euler angle values, and then convert to
quaternion each frame.
