Yes.   I recently tried to install povmodeler, with no success.
It would be great if I had even a basic version that was easy to install on
linux Mint.  I tried to install kde - but that went nowhere fast.

There are a lot of projects that make sporadic progress - either to address some
sort of "I wish I had a modeler to do this" issue, or to try to implement a
simple modeler for a handful of objects.
I'm halfway through the circle/tangent thing for prisms myself, and that may
still take some time before It's ready for use/abuse testing.

Please, by all means, get something installable and useable out to the community
- I get the feeling that there are a lot of people who lurk or use POV-Ray but
are not active participants in the forum.
