for default pigment just a brief /change/ annotation:
http://wiki.povray.org/content/Reference:Pigment

i created a talk page for the rest:
http://wiki.povray.org/content/Reference_Talk:Version_Directive

i cleaned up the intro paragraph. after the syntax diagram i grouped the 
expanded discussions together. followed by examples.

in the 1st paragraph after the syntax at the sentence... As with version 
3.8 or later... things kind of fell apart for me. what you had written 
just didn't make any sense so that was the best i could do. please 
review and edit on the talk page.
