Having watched this discussion go on and on and on for years I ask myself, why
hasn't the Povteam just given the code to someone to play around with. God knows
we have been sitting on our butts for two years, progress could have been made.
I see many users volunteering but it's like getting blood out of a stone, or
does the stone have any blood left in it?
Any suggestions??
