Oh sure, should work, I'll fix it!
Just keep testing. Try mirror texture too (RGB)! (And I should add the  
'ray mirr' value to texture channels as well.)

BTW: the refraction index will be renamed IOR, and range from 1.0-5.0  
(or so). Seems to be convention, but I have no previous experience with  
this stuff. :)

(thanks, goofster)
