Interesting question.

What about warp{} ? I didn't test this but what if you do a first 
transformation within a warp statement /before/ the texture_map {} and a 
second warp statement /after/ the texture_map{}, reversing somehow your 
earlier warp transformation. Somehow, it seems not to make any sense at 
all but who knows...

Something else I was thinking was to make those reverse transformations 
(within a warp or not by the way) to the inside textures individually, 
and then apply the correct transformations to the outside texture? No 
idea if that would do what you want...
