assuming the "average" Matlab user not to know POV-Ray, and having to install it
first, I think it will be important that your software outputs complete,
ready-to-render scenes, that is, ideally generate sets of .pov and .ini files,
plus, perhaps where data "dictates", .inc(s), to enable the prospective Matlab
users to use your s/ware without having to know/learn anything about POV-Ray as
