Siggraph couldn't show it fully to me, but he told me it will show up as some
kind of lister where the user can assign shaders, tweak parameters and watch
a shader ball update(!), and even set some generally unsupported options like
gridsize and bucketsize. It sounds pretty good, but you should check it out
further with Pixar.
