Hi guys,

While doing wrapper for light source I was little bit confused with this line:
....
Light source default values:
LIGHT_TYPE        : pointlight
....
on wiki page: https://wiki.povray.org/content/Reference:Light_Source

As soon as there is no 'pointlight' in this list:
....
LIGHT_TYPE:
  spotlight | shadowless | cylinder | parallel
....
and parser gives an error on this keyword, the only way to define point light is
not to set LIGHT_TYPE at all.

Not a big problem, but it seams to me there is some misunderstanding here.
