In doing some texture testing recently ran across a commit in 54b283a 
the comments for which listed brilliance features that are not 
documented that I could see (have I missed it?).

I've been playing with these some in our current 3.7.1 master branch and 
they seem useful.

In the radiosity block :

brilliance on/off

In the finish block a second parameter for brilliance applying the 
effect to outgoing light as well as in:

brilliance 2,2

Is there a reason these features are not documented ?

release.

Alright. I'll take the features as tentative ones which might get 
removed from the final 3.7.1 and not now propose documentation on the 
wiki for them. Thanks.
