Dear Antonello,

you are right, no spherical mesh is available for scoring (note that it
would imply bins of different volumes, varying as r**2 sin(theta), whereas
with a cylindrical one there is a dependence on r only), but you can of
course cover your spherical body with a Cartesian mesh suitably fine
