Alas, it was intended to be used on pre-rounded CSG to produce meshes for
surface perturbation. I mostly use it for making weathered bricks, or boulders.
Nice to see it wheeled out though :)

I have never found a satisfactory solution to the general rounding problem.
Isosurface blobs are good, but isosurfaces take so long to render. Extensive
macros for CSG, or hand-modelled meshes seem the best value for time vs
results...
