  Lighting.cpp - Assign_Vector used to copy a COLOUR into an RGB  
From: Massimo Valentini

Looking into the sources of Linux povray (from povuni_s.tgz - version
3.50a)(but the same is in the Win source) I saw two calls to
Assign_Vector that appear to me wrong. On my platform a VECTOR (the size)
occupies 24 bytes, an RGB (the destination) 12, and a COLOUR (the source)
20. Details follow the signature.

If I'm wrong and the code is correct, I think a comment, in the source, 
explaining the thing would be useful.


-> File: lighting.cpp - Line: 5767-5774
        Assign_Vector(reflectivity, Reflection_Min);
      else if (fabs(Reflection_Frac-1.0)<EPSILON)
        Assign_Vector(reflectivity, Reflection_Max);

-> File: lighting.cpp - Line: 5700-5701
void determine_reflectivity(DBL *weight, RGB reflectivity, COLOUR
        COLOUR Reflection_Min, int Reflection_Type, DBL Reflection_Falloff,

(I see this function is called for instance in compute_lighted_texture and
there 'reflectivity' is a COLOUR, but still only 20 bytes)
