Seems like a reasonable option. I will add it. Right now the includes 
are added if a POV-Ray custom material is typed in PoseRay instead of 
using the basic material. With the option the following block of code 
will be toggled at the top of the materials file:

#include "textures.inc"
#include "stones.inc"
#include "metals.inc"
#include "finish.inc"
#include "golds.inc"
#include "stars.inc"
#include "woods.inc"
#include "skies.inc"
#include "glass.inc"

There is also a set of functions that PoseRay uses for the materials. I 
am still debating including them as a separate file or just adding them 
to the top of the material file.
