I have done a first test; but I need to make a better test scene with
more transformations, more objects and spheres only.
Anyway, there were improvements in memory and parsing.
But also a big improvement in render time. :D
I will make a better test scene and get back to you.
Thanks a lot for the great work!
Best wishes, /A
