A few minor comments after my first use - version 202106.2.

1)----------
You can get rid of the high ambient warning by changing:

#declare tabu__data_finishes_ = array [2] {
   finish {ambient .1 diffuse .8 specular .1},
   finish {ambient 0 emission .85}
};

to

#declare tabu__data_finishes_ = array [2] {
   finish {ambient .1 emission 0 diffuse .8 specular .1},
   finish {ambient 0 emission .85}
};


2)----------
Documentation. (Great by the way)

Where you have references to your google drive for your Foreach() and 
Ruled() variation at the bottom of the documentation, it would be handy 
to have a reference/link to the most current Tabulated() too.

A nit, but, indicating the Tabulated() version to which the 
documentation pertains in the html would be helpful.

3)----------

Not unexpectedly ;-) ..., the macro uses all lower case identifiers, but 
well prefixed ones. For the povr branch, this does force a configuration 
and compile without the identifier case checking to make use of it.


Great work jr & Tabulated() development helpers!
