Yes, and the even "better" news is that for each granite, the nine (9!) 
different variations (the mixed use of "cells", "step noise", "crackle") 
are better integrated now (still some tweak-work to do though) not to 
mention the "blended" version and whether the output is "polished" or 
not. I confess it is a hell of a brain-twisting job for me to get that 
graphically and comprehensively described in the - at this stage - so 
very necessary docs. Even for me, who built this coding maze, I struggle 
to get it right! However, I slowly get there...
