Thank you for the feedback Kenneth, and good job finding Cluster (I'll have to look
through that collection, most of it is new to me too). If you don't mind I would like
to put you as a contributor when the article is updated.

Never heard of Rayshade before, though it looks like it's still being maintained:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/rayshade/
Not dissimilar to POV-Ray it seems, I'll have to poke around at some point.
