just noticed something with my current project and don't know if this is 
intentional or not...statistics are only reporting light sources that 
are /not/ in a light group. scene has 1 source not in any group with 4 
lights in 2 groups... the lights used in the groups are a macro

The macro has nothing to do with that.

Light group lights are stored separately in POV-Ray's internal data 
structures; I guess there wasn't an intentional decision to omit them 
from the statistics, just plain old oversight.

thanks ... if you address this please consider reporting number of light 
groups as well as adding the lights in those groups to the overall light 
source total
