Hi Bill,

Your eyes are keen enough... there is definitely some color banding going on.
And no, I didn't enable dithering :S

Some of the banding on the right side might be exacerbated by the luminous bloom
sampling set I used. I need to make a new sampling set that isn't so regular, or
perhaps I should try to develop a new type of bloom that utilizes averaged noisy
normals. Or maybe I should try the blurred reflections feature in UberPOV...
