Done that two days ago.

However, the 'refactor' branch is once again ahead already, and I can 
now proudly announce that the last remaining references to VECTOR have 
finally been squashed yesterday. (Well, kind of - it was actually some 
hours after midnight, which leaves me kinda tired today, but that's 
perfectly okay :)).


Next steps: Getting rid of UV_VECT, and eliminating COLOUR from the 
back-end. Both will require major refactoring of the blend map handling, 
which might turn out to be a tough nut to crack.
