Hi, folks! I just implemented an OpenSCAD media type.

It is still WIP but it works minimally. Check the attached screenshot.

So basically you submit a .scad script. It renders a preview and an
STL file in OpenSCAD. You can see the preview and the 3D model in a
webgl canvas in GMG just like an stl file.

I started writing it as a plugin, then I had some problems and just
wrote it off the GMG media_types subtree. If you wanna test it you can
it checkout from my repo:

Future work: 

- have it render more views (top, side and so), like the stl processor
- support for 2D output (OpenSCAD can work in 2D and export DXF's as
- abstract 3D rendering in media_types.stl for more renderers (like
  POV Ray) and/or use the stl processing chain do generate 2D
  renderings from OpenSCAD's stl output
- support projects with multiple files and custom .scad libraries
- manufacturing metadata (like, this file should be cut with a laser
  cutter, this file should be 3D printed)

If you guys like the idea I'm willing to commit it to master when it
gets decent.
