   I think I've figured it out... it would consist on a spherical mesh of
triangles, where each face would be rotated so that the normal will
point on the direction of the tangent. That would lead to a bunch of
disconnected triangles, which could be used with type 3 and smooth. Now
I have to figure out how to construct such a mesh... maybe using wings3d
would be better than trying to figure out the maths to do it with a macro.
