I must have somehow missed f_quantum, which is probably what I'm remembering.

I suppose I must have thought that there was one function that encompassed all
of the s through d orbitals, but I must have just been thinking of scenes where
people were rendering their own functions.

But good search-fu! And fast! I'm sure that those ought to make nice isosurfaces
with a blobbing function.
