Well, programs are small and key part is mostly concentrated in on 
string, so, if you have Python (I had it because daughter installed it 
for some other purposes, so, to get the Python, you should get a 
daughter as an installation manager), you can rotate, resize, whatever 
these cubes as you wish. Besides, they are not just cubes - they are 
declared as "thingie" in the beginning of POV file, so you can change 
them from "box" to something else. The only reason I don't do every 
possible thing inside program is that it would actually require some 
fast preview to make sence of such a flexible editing, and I don't see 
the way to have a preview so far. Rumors are there's a OpenGL for 
Python, but I have no experience with it, maybe it's not good enough for 
my purpose.

But well, so far you can edit all this with text editor and hopefully do 
something that may be considered "art".
