I'am afraid that this paper describes the opposite process: fitting something
_into_ sphere. I mean counctrusting arbitrary form _from_ spheres of different
radiuses to achieve best fit (most completed volume). Sorry for

Despite that, I forced this Matlab function to work, fixing a few typos.

In any case this was an interesting investigation, I suppose, we can use this
method in future for something useful.
