3D fractals / Kineme3D Parametric

After reading all of the discussion that led to the advent of the "mandelbulb" over at fractal forum, my interest in 3D fractals has grown.

What I'm wondering is, could the parametric patch actually make a shape like the mandelbulb? Has anyone experimented with that kind of thing yet?

(Also, after playing with the mandelbulb, it sure makes me realize how my suggested idea of a palindrome heightfield would make it really easy to create 3d liquid looking mesh, but also things like this 3D fractal, but much quicker fps wise, most likely).
