BTW, my reason for choosing these particular minimum_reuse and maximum_reuse
values is based on what I perceive to be a ratio, approximately 1:13, which is
the same ratio as the default values...
           minimum_reuse 0.015
           maximum_reuse 0.2

I assume that the defaults were chosen for a reason; and from experimenting, it
looks like my own values reproduce the same *kind* of effect, only on a smaller
scale (for more detail in object corners, etc.) So this radiosity block is my
preferred choice, at the moment ;-) With whatever COUNT value I choose.
