No worries.  Always just ask and someone can chime in at some point with an
explanation, a link, or some code.

I don't really use focal blur - but when I took real photographs and developed
and printed real film and paper, the smaller the aperture, the more things were
in focus.   A greater depth of field.
So I'd tend to suggest the opposite - use a huge aperture, and look_at something
other than what you want to be out of focus.

Dan Byers just posted a great little animation - maybe poke him and ask him what
his secret is.   :)
