Yes, for now I consider it the mission to be establishing a baseline for
the feature, matching MegaPOV as closely as possible (except for the
presumed scaling bug). Non-trivial bug fixes may follow sooner or later,
but they're not priority.

Which is why I'd love to hear whether the issues reported by omniverse
are also seen with MegaPOV.

It may come as a surprise to you, but the glow feature is entirely
independent of media, so there's no reason to tie modifications of one
to the other.
