Exactly. I just posted an image of my desert towers with a cheesy effect 
that took 4 hours to render, which is for me a long time.

The mesh_camera can fire many rays for each pixel, one ray per defined 
mesh, and add them together.

And since you probably have a defined mesh, you can include it in the 
scene file itself with a texture and it will effect every pixel. It's 
kind of like screen.inc magic but with any projection type, even the 
whacked out things mesh_cameras can do.

I'm still trying to solve a few problems and then I have to figure out 
how to post my tutorial on what I've learned.
