Heard, loud and clear.  Plus, I went back and rendered the old metal
textures, and I don't think they will be missed.  The portfolio scenes
don't give a realistic impression of how hideous they are.

The ambients all default to zero, but for maximum flexibility, the
revised include files retain a provision for a small ambient.  I
included this provision due to my experiments last November.

All these images were rendered without radiosity, because with radiosity
in POV-Ray 3.8, the ambient issue becomes moot.  But as I wrote in the
OP, the high ambient values are not the only problem with the textures
as they have been.

If you all like these, I will post the revised include files to p.b.s-f
(and also figure out how to do branches and pull requests).
