MCPov allows you to do exactly that, using a simple "mc_reflect" keyword in 
the finish block.  It takes parameters for the number of rays to spawn and 
the "burriness" of the reflection:


Personally I think MCPov style ray spawning should be included in the core 
POV, I guess the only tricky bit is figuring out a decent SDL syntax that is 
easy to use, but also allows enough flexibility.
