[Bf-committers] bump mapping - white is down & black is up???

Wow, it seems like this is the rare issue where all seem to be in agreement!
 Seems white = up, black = down.  Though my word does not carry much weight
I would like to give a +1 to making it this way.

And I might as well throw my little analogy here - For bump mapping I always
thought of snow.   As snow piles up, things get more white.  As snow goes
away, things of course turn more brown/black.  Yet another of the seemingly
endless analogies for black equaling crevasses and white equaling peaks.
Hope this proposal goes through!
