Thanks for the code and the link  :)

I do like that we have a lot of people who design and write include files and
code snippets, however much of what I'm musing about are additions to the source

And that's for several reasons:

1.  It will be well-established, working, tested, reliable code to perform a
specific task in "the right way".

2.  and therefore, the [new] user, or experienced user who just doesn't have the
desire to write or track down such code will have it embedded into POV-Ray

3. and it follows along with the concept of "inseparability" - detachable things
like scene and include files get lost, forgotten, and even deleted.

4. Sometimes certain things are faster, because they are compiled code, and SDL
can be slow

So, I definitely think that plenty of scenes and macros and functions and
include files ought to be written and developed - but my wish is to see them
constantly being looked at for inclusion into subsequent versions.
