are there anywhere around any patches to VTK to get more characters in
vtkVectorText (say Cyrillic)?
On the other hand, is there any demand for fixing and extending vector
text support in vtk?
May be I miss something and vtkVectorText is in its present sore state
only because it is superseded by something superior?
On the other hand, VTK uses FTGL intenally to render bitmap fonts on the
screen. But FTGL can make polygon fonts too.
It must be easy enough to hack FTGL to make a polygon set
for VTK, instead of feeding triangles to OpenGL directly.
But again - why was not it done aleady?
