So, an ancient plugin, still works fine: what interesting generalities can we come up about it?

1) Someone on FB was trying to use it to wrap a, essentially, doily around a sphere, but since this is more of a Mercator/rectangular effect if failed. IS there a transformation that would wrap a circular doily around a sphere?

2) Can WRAP SPHERE be used as an intermediate step toward the construction of more exotic structures? EG, can it be used in combination with Weight Maps to do something surprising?

3) What principles can we suggest to users who are mucking about with WRAP SPHERE?

And.... GO!
