[OpenSCAD] lighting angle?

I'm trying to use openSCAD for 2D drawings then exporting to PNG.  The
lighting angle becomes significant because the top view has everything with
the wrong color, i.e. too gray, because of the lighting angle.  The viewing
angles which make the lighting correct, then add an artificial 3D
perspective to the drawing, which makes the .png export wrong.  Trying to
rotate the whole object into the light will work for preview, but then there
doesn't seem to be an obvious view angle (like "top") to get a flat
projection of it.
