You're right...the darkness seems a little much.  I didn't actually
write the BRDF implementation; that was already there (Brecht adopted
it from the OSL Ward implementation I think).  The Ward BRDF may not
be properly energy-conserving.  If I had my choice, I think I would
implement Ashikhmin-Shirley or a D-BRDF variant of it instead of Ward,
as I know that one is pretty solid.
