Fair enough. Just a suggestion.

I have not yet experimented with Norbert's example. I am indeed aware of 
the size problem related with mesh{} files. POV-Tree for example writes 
in mesh{} as the program never made it into a mesh2{} version 
unfortunately, and some tree files get memory problems indeed.
[Note to self: should try to import such a file in Poseray and re-export 
as mesh2.]
