I'm attaching a text file which amounts to my current notes related to 
finish concerns with POV-Ray - and to some degree what I've been playing 
with in povr to address them(a).

Near the top are my general finish recommendations related to albedo use.

(a) - The file is packaged with my povr tarballs. The version attached 
being my most current - with updates last done in February of this year.

I started investigating and writing the file with a hope of creating 
better albedo documentation. I too find the albedo keyword use and 
behavior confusing. Today, despite the file name, it's grown to be my 
'notes / current thinking' related to all finish block concerns.
