had not known of this either.
self prefers small, dedicated tools. the source linked ('gts2pov'[*]) builds a
small and reasonably quick executable, used for these:
$ cc -std=c99 -pedantic -Wall -Wextra -O2 -fPIC -o gts2pov gte2pov.c
edit line 40 to raise the maximum vertices per mesh, default 1M.

that does sound, um, a little masochistic. :-)

the user ought to have choice of 'mesh' or 'mesh2', imo.
