I saw that post. I really do not understand the projection pattern well 
enough to see why is mesh{} still needed. The old mesh format was 
removed from PoseRay's code base a long time ago. It created files that 
were way too large and it was slow to parse. Often, with large models, 
POV-Ray would run out of memory. I will look into it but I doubt mesh{} 
will return to PoseRay.
