Sounds like a volunteer...

Transparency would be the main thing, to me, then. We should be able to
set these images onto white, black, etc backgrounds (ex: table cell
shading, for a chessboard) and not see anything but the mids.

And I bet the write POVray code + wait for render time is orders of
magnitude more time and effort than my press O (Eyedropper) + click the
palette + press Shift+B (Paint Bucket tool) + click at most four times
to fill.

Hmmm... maybe a script could be written which would loop through colors
and orientations, outputting read-to-run POVray code, so one could just
copy & paste the code into POVray. That would certainly be consistent
and avoid coding errors (and with at least 275 to make, it would be
worth the script coding time).
