In a way you are right but it is StephenS who is the real expert. :-D
I get by with it.

I would recommend against Moray, unless you prefer a coordinate system 
with the Z-axis set as up. (In PovRay the default is Y-axis: up.)

Both Moray and Bishop3D render with older versions of PovRay. Versions 
3.5 and 3.62 respectively. But the files can be manually run in the 
latest version of PovRay, without modification, taking advantage of your 
machine's multi cores . I cannot overstate how important that is. :)
