When I get some rest and have some more energy and focus, I'm going to try to
make sure it's fully applicable for use with 3D pigment patterns and media.

I figured out how to implement a placement / repetition warp in SDL, and so once
it's all worked out, you should be able to plop multiple spiral warps into a
single pigment pattern definition, and have them all work.

It's gonna be a little complicated, so it may take some time, but the important
parts are figured out - so now it's just making a scene incorporating all of the
pieces, seeing what's broken or missing, and iteratively tweaking it...

No unofficial patch - it was all done in standard POV-Ray 3.8 (qtpovray)
