That's a good and interesting point. In effect: If *large* rad patches are a
blend of colors from various points/objects in the scene-- which I *think* is
the case-- and if one of those patches is pure black, then maybe the entire
'blend' is reduced to black there(?). I have never tested that, but it's worth
an experiment to see what happens.
