First of all, I'm very happy with current Blender exporter. I use it very
extensively in paid work. I don't want it to be broken.

However, if someone would be kind enough to add Povray native functionality,
like Booleans, to it, I would be very happy. I currently use my own Python
generator scripts when I need native Povray functionality (i.e. Booleans). Btw,
the current Blender exporter supports adding "native" POV script too! :D

Anyway, we should always respect other developers and remember that co-operation
is very important. It is much better to have one exporter with trustworthy
functionality than two half baked ones. Unnecessary competition can cause
problems.

I strongly suggest that Blender official routes are used as much as possible,
then we can have continuity. In the long run, continuity means you have the
tools even if someone is not willing to develop any more.

Btw, I am really grateful of the things already achieved!
