now version 0.3.0, but completely re-written[*] to optionally calculate vertex
normals.  I've posted two images in p.b.images, both showing meshes with and
without smoothing (cones.png, seashells.png).

since I have not really played with, nor calculated, normals before, I cannot
tell whether the outline above the right side cone is due to some bug in my code
(likely :-)), or the optical "make believe" breaking down.


enjoy, jr.
