without ini files we'd have to (ab)use 'Makefile's.  :-)  I use them mostly for
animations too, but (now) find it convenient, when "developing" a scene, to have
an ini with an unnamed section, with the "lo" quality settings for quick render,
and a named section with settings for "final" render.  (laziness, I guess.
forget command-line options, just 'pov38 myini')

btw, you did ask for a reminder re tangents/pulleys.  here's another.  ;-)

regards, jr.
