[racket] Crowdsourcing Pict3D's design

Neil, I'm having a problem on OS X 10.9 where the mouse isn't behaving as I
expect. I may have to make a movie of this, but I'm hoping not. The short
version is this: I can't look around. More specifically:
- I run the example program (with the circle of radius 1/2).
- I click on the image.
- I can move the camera with the keys as expected.
- Moving the mouse results in quivering,  but nothing more.  After fiddling
with it for about five minutes, I've decided that there might be a "center
the mouse" call that's being used to keep the (hidden) mouse cursor in the
middle of the window, and that on my mac, at least, this centering call is
also returning the orientation of the camera to its original location. The
result is that I feel like I'm struggling with a malevolent genie; I can
make the camera turn just a bit, but no matter how hard I run, I'm pulled
back to the same location.

Let me know if you want me to make a movie of this.

Otherwise: fantastic. Awesome. Fix it so I can show it to all my graphics
