If you take a look at these programs output, you'll see "thingie" 
declared. That's the basic object, mosaic element. Later it gets color 
and finish added, is scaled, rotated and moved where necessary, but the 
same object is used for all mosaic. Therefore, you may replace it with 
another object once, and it will be replaced throughout the whole scene 
(just take care about it's size. For spheres and boxes it's 1*1*1, for 
others described in the file), using the same symmetry as original. 
About the only thing I don't recommend - using too complex objects. 
Surely, you can edit POV file produced by my program to add .inc with 
very complex object, and it will work (I've tried with spline 
figurines), but very slowly.
