I am an active Object Collection contributor, and I test my modules
across different POV-Ray versions. Some differences between v3.7.0 and
v3.7.1 are significant enough that I wish to keep v3.7.0 around.
Regarding the Unix version, I did *not* take your earlier suggestion to
run the configure script with the --prefix= parameter. (See "Peaceful
coexistence between 3.7.0 and 3.7.1" in p.t.tutorials.) I understand
this to mean that my beta installs have already been storing data where
v3.7.0 looks for them. (I've already noticed the changes in the user
manual.) Does this mean that the hack I used to keep both versions
coexisting should continue to work?

Done. So far, the only incompatibility I've noticed is with ior.inc.

Theoretically, I have no worries there, but I have yet to address your
response to my troubles with INI files.
