Maybe you want to check out Thomas Baier's POB-SDK. (Find a link to his page
on the Moray Download page.)

It includes a custom made version of POV-Ray (for DOS) which reads a POV
script and outputs everything in it into a POB file (which is a binary
format). Another tool in the package can read such a POB file and generate a
POV script from it. This resulting script does not have any whiles, ifs etc.
but only declarations of the objects that were generated by the actual first
script.

Hope it helps,
Johannes.
