Spheres and cones, actually.  My macro calls SphereSweep from the Object
Collection, and on the quoted post I wasn't thinking about how
SphereSweep did its job.

I was planning to wean my macro off SphereSweep, but then it occurred to
me that a sudden change in color might be too drastic a change in sphere
sizes to connect with a cone.  I'm talking degenerate cone and square
root of a negative number parse errors here.  SphereSweep handles these
complications automatically, so I'm just going to keep it as a prerequisite.
