These all sound good. But not easy. Also it would be great to have a simpler language (or web UI) in front of POV-Ray that could handle simple koans. Maybe this is just a matter of more macros? I don't have any specific ideas for this, it's been a while since I thought about it.
What if you tried to adapt SHRDLU <http://hci.stanford.edu/~winograd/ shrdlu/> to Icehouse pieces, with a POV-Ray backend? That would be pretty nifty. You might even be able to get it to do automatic koan- marking and answering questions about koans, reducing how often the master had to be involved, though I don't know how feasible that would be.
