I was just thinking about this -

Is there a simple way to add additional data to the file formats that allow it -
metadata, "Alternate Data Streams" for the information that pops-up when
hovering over the file in a directory, Squirreling away notes - author,
version/revision, (C), and maybe even SDL code inside PNG files, etc. ???

Having POV-Ray automatically post-process a file would be good, having this
capability as a native function of POV-Ray would be better   ;)

Being able to load such embedded SDL from a supported graphic file into POV-Ray
would be super cool as well   :)

Great way to simplify uploading all the data, and HOW you made that great
raytraced image wouldn't be lost....
