In my experience it helps with POV-Ray 3.6, but slows things down with 
POV-Ray 3.7--for the same isosurface function!  I once had a mind to ask 
the group about this anomaly, but I never got a round tuit (POVers 
charge a premium for those!), and I cannot find my records of the timing 
statistics.  I don't normally use it, but I believe Thomas de Groot uses 
it a great deal.
