I have improved the rendering speed of objects with blurred reflection and
radiosity.  In order to see this improvement:

- You must use macro RC3Metal_Blur() or RC3Metal_Normal_blur().
  The improvement does not apply to macros RC3Metal_Blur_t() and

- You must use POV-Ray 3.7 or later for any significant speedup.

Theoretically, there should be a slight speedup for non-radiosity and pre-3.7
scenes, but said theoretical speedup is too insignificant to notice.
