I don't know what you have in mind for this, if it's not the render over

This seems like a better approach, as with MCPov you're often left
re-rendering the entire image waiting for just a small dark area to
So if you implement the less artefact-prone GI and combine it with the
per-pixel oversampling it should be something better than MCPov? Sounds
good to me! Hand firmly raised!
