I posted this a few years a go, but recently did a few tweaks to fixed 
compatibility issue with the original version.

There is no license statement with your file.  It is evident that you 
based your modifications on a pre-3.7 version of the file, and as such, 
it would bear the license of that version of POV-Ray, but there is no 
indication of that to the user.

You should be aware that there was a change to macro Screen_Object in 
version 3.7.  If you are considering this change, note that it will 
cause a parse error in versions 3.5 and 3.6.*.

I updated the script slightly. There is now also the license, and I 
incorporated the official changes to the Screen_Object macro.

Why does it save and restore the version, but not change it?

I forgot about that. What should I do instead?

I would just delete those two lines, they are unnecessary.

Okay. Unfortunately, the file has never had any version numbers, so all 
the different versions floating around (I'm not the only one) are hard 
to keep straight.

A smarter approach would be to leave them in, and add a `#version 3.7`
(or some such) indicating the minimum version of POV-Ray known to work
with the include file.
