I agree that Moray made so much more sense.

I am still hanging out for it to be released opensource so we can hack on it to
get it up to date.  Even if it no longer was primarily for POVRay but rather
putting out STL files for 3D Printing that would be awesome.

I mean imagine raytracing your 3D object before you print it even!

I feel like since POVRay doesn't have a top quality modeller in line with it's
raytracer it has really hurt the project.  Shame because I love them both.
