Summary: MegaPOV support needed, especially on Intel Macs

Initial Comment:
Now Avogadro support export to POV-Ray for rendering. However, the latest version of POV-Ray on Mac is really outdated (Their homepage suggested that users should use OS9 to run POV-Ray), and there’s no Universal Binary version of POV-Ray, it runs very slow on Intel macs and often crash.
MegaPOV is an unofficial enhanced version of POV-Ray, which is available in Universal Binary and runs fine on OSX 10.5. I suggest that Avogadro should consider to add support to MegaPOV, so the rendering on Intel Macs would be greatly improved.
