I took a bunch of the suggestions about how to get radiosity to ever 
finish in a scene like this:
	- The walls have no_radiosity, but there is a no_image box with the 
same texture for each of them.
	- The ceiling lights are emitting with radiosity importance 1, and I 
played around with them a lot.

I then rendered it on my favorite 64-core server and after about 4 days 
it came up with the attached image.  The walls aren't showing much in 
terms of artifacts, but the posters sure are, and the ceiling lights are 
leaving spots on the floor.

I'm off on another project at the moment.  The only thing I really liked 
better about the radiosity version over the original is that the light 
coloring is better, but I probably could have done that by playing with 
the light source colors as well.
