Excellent.

I got dragged into the distasteful task of fixing/replacing my old cell phone
(swapping out the motherboard has got me 99% of the way there) and haven't had a
chance to delve into this yet.

Having written all of this, you would be the most knowledgeable about what to
test / show off in a demo scene.

Depending on changes, documentation might not be comprehensive until it's all
real-world tested-broken-fixed in the wild.

My (essentially new) phone with the granite photos is the one that suddenly and
inexplicably died - I will see if I can still retrieve them.  Maybe the
dimension should be a parameter...

I will look, at fiddling with the inc file - as this is likely to drive the
creation of all of the previous items.



Thanks for all of your expertise and industrious coding in this!
I think it's pretty nice that we have some new patterns and materials that came
out of this - relatively quickly - and hopefully a lot of the methods extend
over to other materials.

I will get 2nd coffee and begin reading...
