RenderMan RI bindings for Mathematica

I have a nearly complete implementation of the RenderMan interface 
bindings done for Mathematica. This is a resurrection of a project, if 
you can believe it, started back when I was at Pixar and Stephen called 
us to see if there was some way we could all work together on 
something. (well, it's much more complicated, but boring).

Note that it isn't an export format (although that is pretty trivial, 
given the bindings) but rather the whole RI implementation, allowing 
you to set up entire scenes renderable by RenderMan Interface-compliant 
renderers.

It isn't totally ready for prime time with respect to distribution, 
but, 1) if you're fault tolerant and 2) willing to help finish off the 
port (or put together the builds for other platforms, right now its 
MacOS X using Xcode, but is trivially movable to Makefile-land) contact 
me and I'll share.
