Week 10

>> Note: on Sunday I'll be flying back to Italy, so I can't attend the meeting. Sorry about that! <<

This week
Added support for "Sphere" option and phong correction/terminator thingy/bias.

Started working on "faster tree creation", but no code committed yet.
It turned out to require some modifications to the kd-tree code, and I
want to make sure that they don't break other uses of it, etc. I am
debugging right now, I hope to commit as soon as possible.

Next week
Targets: finishing "faster tree creation", and starting basic,
proof-of-concept implementation of instant radiosity.

Btw support for Oren-Nayar diffuse is probably buggy, have to look into it.

Pretty good, but still a lot of details to fix! In the next couple of
days I'm moving back to Italy so I'll resume working on gsoc on
