Does anyone know if POV is capable of generating matte metallic surfaces?  Matte
metallic surfaces do not produce the typical mirrored reflections that we are
accustomed to seeing in POV.  Instead, they cast reflections only in the form of
dull, black shadows.  The xmas ornaments in the attached image are matte
metallic because they do not produce true reflections, only shadows.
