My Python scripting is progressing with mixed results. Linear animation is OK,
but Hermite interpolation is... well, buggy. Texture animation works. Let's see
how far this goes.

Some progress!

I changed from Hermite curves to Catmull-Rom splines. Now it (mostly) works.
This is a random character walk along a spline:


There are now half dozen Python scripts which do all animation. There is no .ini
or clock settings inside Pov script files.

There are very probably many bugs and the scripts are actively hostile to user
(no errors of any kind allowed...).

However, this is getting interesting.
