[vtk-developers] vtkDepthImageToPointCloud

I'm adding a class to VTK that I am currently calling
vtkDepthImageToPointCloud. It takes as input a depth image and optional
scalar image plus a camera, and produces a point cloud (vtkPolyData) as

The question is: I want to place it in VTK/Imaging/Hybrid. David G. has
already created a vtkImageToPoints filter located there so it seems a
natural fit. However, since it depends on a vtkCamera, it means extending
module.cmake to depend on vtkRenderingCore in order to build properly.

Is this okay? A better suggestion? Note that VTK/Filters/Hybrid already
depends on vtkRenderingCore so this seems consistent. If I don't hear
anything I'll move ahead.
