[Bf-committers] Curvature Input

Normals do not work because the effect is view vector independent and it
distinguishes between "hill tops" and "valleys". But using a effect dependant on
a x/y/z offset will obviously not work, because the surface is round. Its a
bronze statue where there is corrosion in grooves and where there is shiny
bronze otherwise.
