Hi YB,
I put a small scene together with a few of the blob macros.  Attached is an
image using them to create a more cone-like shape. It's not tales from
topographic oceans but it's a start. :) I like the endless curve forms that can
be created. I clipped/intersected a few inside a sphere to get a smooth top cap.

What is the protocol for posting code. Can I dump it to a message window or is
there a place on the forum to post .pov files?
