I like it very much!
We use POVRay for rendering images to scientific publications, and need
sometimes to do very large images (think 600dpi). We have access to several
large (512 cpu size) installations. Both SMP machines and clusters. To get
the job done unfortunately we need povray 3.6.
Is there any chance you will port your patch to POVRay 3.6 ? I tried naively
to just dump parapov in the 3.6 source, and it didn't work. I would be
happy to help test - also large scale (up to 128 CPU) - runs if
needed/wanted.

Regards,

Troels
