I agree.

We should also consider scaling the aperture size along the way.

Maybe all depending on the order in which camera statements are done. E.g.

    camera_location <0,0,0>
    focal_point <1,2,3>
    scale 2
    aperture 10

should scale the focal point but not the aperture size.


Just brainstorming here ATM.
