With respect to SDL variables, your asking a simple sounding, 
complicated question. :-)

Let me think about what a good answer would be.

I too have thought about bringing out some of the internal values used 
in yuqk - through a new function or new keywords. There are a couple 
good numeric rules of thumb used internally in the yuqk fork. The 
official releases of POV-Ray are ... more chaotic, numerically.
