Question:
how do we copy objects in Blender?

Answer:
SHIFT + D for simple copy, then place with mouse move or number value and left
click or enter to validate.
ALT + D for instanciated copy (modifications to one will also affect the other)

But that is only a subset of the whole community.

Or: Me for one and all the folks that used Moray and Bishop3D.

(It has been ages since this *Holy War* reared it's ugly head. I hope 
that all the fundamentalists have gone to bed.)

AlsoI don't think it is a good idea to discourage people from finding 
out about PovRay because they can't code. Oops! I forgot. There are a 
few coders who use blender.

Surprise! My name is *howling wind*! :-)

The days that POV-Ray was /only/ used by exclusively SDL-writing people 
are over as far as I understand it.

My opinion: the blender developers and the povray developers - enemies
They sent to the users secret mail with the prevention of it.
Here don't want to know Blender.
Also on a site BlenderArtist don't want to know Povray.
Only it is visible:  Cycles, Cycles, Cycles,
as if it is better.

So, nothing particular to POV-Ray users it seems. Parochial /blindness/ 
is universal... :-)

The only reason I don't do much anything on Povray these days (besides the lack
of free time) is that it does not integrate well with a top notch 3d-program
like Blender. I just can't get my self to make scenes using just code. I'm
good at drawing and stuff and those skills are useless when typing code.

I recently tried a great free modeler called Sculptris (it's amazing!) and
importing some models in to Povray through PoseRay, it kind of worked but was
just too slow and not enough.

The ability to set the geometry of the whole scene completely in Blender and to
use Povray code to embellish the scene (and for rendering) would be a dream come
true. I'm certainly going to try the Povray exporter for Blender and maybe the
Blend2Pov when I have the time.
