A Python + Geometry class not using PyGeo.

Advantages -

Ability to draw (in 3d, betond Flatland) from the interactive prompt.

Live, realtime interactivity. Fly-by, rotate, dynamically manipulate, etc.
one's constructions.

Maybe most importantly - stay *in* Python.  No need to introduce Povray
semantics to folks who are getting their first taste of programming in
Python. Give them a break.

And export to Povray directly from PyGeo if one wants a "picture".

Don't get it.  Truly.

And would be happy to work with you on correcting this oversight for future
classes. ;)
