I changed the #define in the file vtkCellType.h into an enum. As far as
I know this should not be an issue for anyone, if not let me know ASAP.
The reasoning behind was that:
* First this allow to automatically count the max number of cells in VTK
(used to be defined in vtkCutter under VTK_NUMBER_OF_CELL_TYPES)
* A developer can now verify he wrote a correct switch instead of doing:
one can now do:
VTKCellType t = input->GetCellType(cellId);
then one only need to make sure to use -Wswitch (gcc) when compiling
VTK, this will generate warning for the enumerated case not treated.
