Deep thoughts LanuHum (I don't understand what you mean).
I am using the file as default and I like the layout.

One* question. Previously I changed the Blender materials in Povray I am 
not familiar with Blender materials and textures.

Does the PovRay material file require a specific name?
Can you have multiple PovRay material files in Blender?
Did you write a module to use nodes similar to Cycles? I liked the idea 
of nodes as it seems more user friendly. If you did not, please don't 
rush off and do it. It is only a question.

* Never was good at counting. :)
