Needed to tweak the settings for the eye, looks like specular's done 
differently in 3.7?  If the only difference preventing straight 
functionality for 3.5 is just the gamma and srgb, could maybe have a 
single checkbox to not use those?  No idea what all other features got 
added that 3.5 might complain about, though, and can easily enough tweak 
on my own.

Something else that I noticed in the material file, could you set it up 
so that if all materials that use a common diffuse map also have 
identical finishes, they get a #defined global-finish so it'd be easy 
to, say, tweak the finish of a figure's skin all at once?

Further note, not sure if it's relevant with 3.7's subsurface stuff, but 
I manually added hollow keywords to each mesh component and changed the 
union to a merge to play with subsurface scattering in 3.5...it being a 
union gave ugly artifacts where body parts met since they're treated as 
separate objects.  Is that something relevant to change in PoseRay's 
output or no?

At any rate, thank you very much for an indispensable utility!
