- that my gaussian blur macros could be modified to blur a pigment so that the
amount of blurring increases along with the distance from the camera.

Since then I have been pondering whether that is possible.

Now I have found a way to do something like that by using my gaussian blur
library and some new code.

The attached image shows the result. Here a union of many boxes is textured with
a single blurred version of a grid-like pigment. I'll also post an image with a
non blurred version of the same pigment.

To test my code further it would be nice if someone could provide me with a
simple sample scene where this might be useful.
