It does 27 objects.
"bicubic_patch", "blob", "box", "cone", "cubic",
  "cylinder", "disc", "julia_fractal", "height_field",
  "isosurface","lathe","mesh","parametric","plane",
  "polygon", "poly", "prism", "quadric", "quartic",
  "smooth_triangle", "sphere", "sphere_sweep","superellipsoid",
  "sor", "text", "torus", "triangle"

I did not see:
conic_sweep, julia_fractal, lemon, ovus, mesh2, polynomial, sky_sphere


And wasn't sure if julia and sky_sphere were "objects".
Also, should there be a polynomial in addition to poly, just to test the
redundant keyword functionality?
