Thanks, yes, I also found that page indeed :-)

Well, should have done that first of all, but the following (hot) 
discussion about mimapping with POV-Ray from 2005 can be found here:
http://news.povray.org/povray.newusers/thread/%3C4282a2e9%40news.povray.org%3E/

I conclude from that, that aa is the ray-tracing answer to mipmapping, 
and I guess that my initial suggestion of stochastic aa is the correct one.
