	I'd like to remove vtk.h from the distribution. This include file was meant to be a
convenience for developers so they would not have to include individual class include files in their
c++ programs. Unfortunately, it is not updated automatically and becomes out of date on occassion.
Also, including the file slows down compilation considerably and its use should be discouraged.

There is only one test that include it I believe.

I'll wait til next week and if there are no objections, I'll remove it along with its companions:
vtkCommon.h, vtkGraphics.h, vtkContrib.h and so on,
