  this sounds great. I will be happy to give it a test drive when its
ready. Keep me posted.

Thanks for the response! Looking at the code in a little more detail,
it looks like I should be able to just grab the part that I need.
vtkCell already handles the significant work involved. I'll likel
have time to implement just what I need for a
vtkImplicitPolyDataFunction, but once I get that done I'll make it
available so that it can be polished off and perhaps contributed.
