No doubt we will be talking about further improvements and refinements, plus broader deployments to Jupyter Notebook, during Web3D 2019 this Friday-Saturday-Sunday and at SIGGRAPH 2019 next week.

Great work, the path is open for serious progress now - onward we go.  Have fun with Python x3d!

> John, please notice that I think a refinement in X3D JSON encoding is possible.  The X3D 'head' statement can only accept three other statements, meta component and unit.  Rather than separate field names for each, we should just lump them together under 'children' just as occurs with Scene.
> Sorry we didn't make it all the way prior to the conferences later this week, but we are clearly out of the woods for X3D Python.  Should be be deployed for much further testing by the end of the month.
