As far as I understand it, the point of removing manual bounding
is to speed up the rendering of scenes designed before POV-Ray 3.0.
In all later scenes manual bounding was added with the intent of
overriding the automatic bounding anyway. So maybe 3.7 might be
a good time to change the default for Remove_Bound to "off"?
