OK, confession time. Many many moons I wrote a python script to parse POV-
Ray scene files and do loop enrolling and a few other manipulations. The 
result ran fast! Python (1.52) not so. Gain, negative :(
The python code I use to colorise the code in HTML is a spin-off of that.

Now, dreaming. Include files compileable to libraries. If I understand it 
right if POV-Ray SDL were written in NIM macros it could be possible. Or 
in LISP. Then again, I happy with the simple language POV-Ray offers. 
There is not much in the way of writing anything and little complexity 
from the language side. 
Also I'm happy with the journey POV-Ray offers. No need for real time 
instant gratification/satisfaction. No bucktlists. No expectations. No GPU 
madness.
