Draws a squadron of shiny 3D space-age jet-powered flying toasters, and
associated toast, flying across your screen.
Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a
visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific
-window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root Draw on the root window.
Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 30000 (0.03
How fast the toasters fly. Larger for faster. Default: 1.0.
How many toasters to draw. Default 20.
How many slices of toast to draw. Default 25.
Turn off texture mapping (for slow machines.)
Render in wireframe instead of solid.

The original After Dark flying toasters, with the fluffy white wings,
were a trademark of Berkeley Systems. Berkeley Systems ceased to exist
some time in 1998, having been gobbled up by Sierra Online, who were
subsequently gobbled up by Flipside and/or Vivendi (it's hard to tell
exactly what happened when.)
I doubt anyone even cares any more, but if they do, hopefully this
homage, with the space-age 3D jet-plane toasters, will be considered
different enough that whoever still owns the trademark to the fluffy-
winged 2D bitmapped toasters won't get all huffy at us.
