That brings me to a question --- is there a way in code to determine
if one is running OpenSCAD as opposed to a clone? 

Wouldn't that depend on how good the clone is?  Just like a
virtual-machine environment, a really good one would be
indistinguishable from the real thing.

And why do you think it's a clone?  Based on the examples, it looks like
it's compiling the graph into an OpenSCAD program and then running that
program in a more or less real OpenSCAD.
