OK, one last set of tweaks for the day, and I'll give it a rest for awhile.
Got to work on some other projects.

But (drum roll), I *did* get the two hypertoons to run in their own threads,
sharing the same display.  It's pretty cool to watch.

Had to change the goofy way I was making so many key vertices global --
better to work with copies of the key vertices, and stuff them in a class
(changes to rbf.py -- also made the icosahedron cyan).


My proposal to speak at OSCON this year was accepted.  This Hypertoon
concept will be a part of my talk, along with Elastic Interval Geometry and
some other stuff.
