[vtkusers] vtkDataSetToStructuredPointsFilter

Hi Vi,

The problem is not with Tcl or Windows.  The problem is that 
vtkDataSetToStructuredPointsFilter is an abstract superclass for classes 
that take a vtkDataSet as input and produce vtkStructuredPoints as 
output.  However, in the version of VTK that you are using, the classes 
that were subclasses of vtkDataSetToStructuredPointsFilter in version 4.0 
are subclasses of vtkDataSetToImageFilter in version 4.4.  This is because 
vtkStructuredPoints is an empty subclass of vtkImageData.  See 
(The change happened between versions 4.0 and 4.2.)
