There's no candle in the demo-files as far as I could see either. But I saw one
posted just a short while ago. Either that or it was on a webpage....
Anyway, I've been working on it too and I've managed to get a semi-realistic
result. It is not as good as it could be, but it did the job for me (the image
might be somewhere in the binaries-group) and it might be a start.
Perhaps someone will post a good, thorough, usable include, otherwise I'd be
happy to share my crap :-)

Good luck,
