Okay, so regarding filenames and directories, this may not be such an issue if I
follow Warp's advice and combine the separate files into a single include per
group.

Of course. If I end up with many files, I'll let you know and put a temporary
..zip on my site that you can upload for me.

By the sounds of it, this won't be too much of a problem either. The Johnson
solids and stellar icosahedra are all prefixed by J23, S48 and so on because of
their unwieldy nomenclature. The others are not sufficiently numerous to stop me
renaming them manually.

If I hit any serious bottlenecks I'll let you know - thanks for the offer!
