Photon Map Update

Howdy RADIANCE crew,

I've updated the RADIANCE photon map addon available at The code is no longer distributed as a patch, but rather as prepatched sources which replace the stock RADIANCE 3.5 code. This code will *not* work with the HEAD release.

Barring residual bugs, this update is final for the foreseeable future. No functionality has been added. I considered adding support for arbitrary BRDFs, but I soon realised this was more trouble than it was worth and of questionable practicality, given the abysmal performance.

Enjoy, and let me know how (if?) it works out for you.
