Python access to the number fields here would be great - it would be a  
perfect application of the presets menu system I've got in tuhopuu3. A  
menu containing common, saveable settings like "Cotton", "Leather",  
"Jelly", "Rubber", or whatever would be so much more convenient than  
trying to understand variables in physics formulas every time :)

Uh, this would be *really* overcomplicating the issue. Minnaert is such  
a specific usage shader already, having two variants that are only  
marginally different would be overkill. I second Jorge's suggestion in  
the dialogue he's started on the tuhopuu-devel mailing list (  
001277.html ) - just keep the current nice, simple and usable  
implementation as is, and rename it to something like "velvet/satin" or  
whatever, so pedants don't get offended that it's not the 'real'  
Minnaert formula. To most users, the end visual appearance is what's
