I have it worked out conceptually, and now need to refactor my development scene
and do some actual math if it's going to be a real pigment {function {} } kinda

A variation on that would be a refinement of Bill P's excellent solution to this
problem - something along the lines of this:
Unless I brainstorm a simpler way.

A "render it to make an image file that can be tiled infinitely" would be
forthcoming WAY sooner.  Maybe.

I have food and garden produce processing projects pending, am finalizing the
restoration of an heirloom 110 year old table, it's the Seasonal rush at work
--- and we just had someone killed in their forklift, so that has made things -
more complicated than usual.

Also I haven't coded a scene this complex in a while, I have misplaced the Dried
Frog Pills, and I need to transcend the fact that - I'm an imbecile.   ;)

But I'm getting ideas as I type, so as usual, the situation is - fluid.

All the best to everyone, their families and friends, as 2022 comes to a close,
and the imminent arrival of The Global Circus of 2023 draws near.
