Here's a question--

I haven't yet taken the time* to experiment much with the new features 
of 3.7 in regard to specifically metallic textures,** but now I'm 
curious--has "brilliance" been affected by the changes to the finish 
statement, and, if so, how?  Because it strikes me that brilliance has 
been an important component of metallic textures for quite a while, 
possibly twenty years or so--oh, good God, have I been Povving THAT 
long?  Oh, dear lord, I'm old!  OLD!

Just curious,

** I've pretty much just played around with subsurface scattering as a 
route to making more realistic cheese.  Imagine a Stanford bunny carved 
from a nice Vermont aged white cheddar.  Mmmm, cheeeeese.
