An alternative (and perhaps better) solution is to make the epsilon
depend on the magnitude of the values involved. For example, when
testing triangles/planes/rays before, I've used an epsilon like
(max(abs(components)) * 1e-6).
Note that the specific assertion, though, just says "the normal should
be normalized." If you generate a normal that isn't normalized, it might
be better to just normalize it, rather than accept normals that are off
the required length by one whole percent.
