This section is a bit sparse. I'm having trouble understanding the toroidal
mapping. I'm using the following texture, and it seems to mirror around the
torus's equator.

 texture
 {
  pigment
  {
   image_map {png "texture_bowels_test.png"}
   rotate x * 180
   scale 1/4
   warp
   {
    toroidal
    orientation y
    dist_exp 0
    major_radius Tiles_Width
   }
  }
  finish {Default_Finish}
  scale Tiles_Width
 }

I'm having trouble understanding its behavior just by reading the docs.
