It would be of quite some benefit to be able to share scene files and 
include files between POV-Ray users, without needing to get half a dozen 
or more different libraries, on-top languages and what-have-you-nots to 

(Even if your suggested approach would be the way to go, it would not 
change the fact that thought should be put into the design of the 
language - if not how to make it easiest for users, then how to make it 
most flexible for adding libraries or auto-generating code.)
