The XDMF file format has been missing support for polyhedral cells, as
it was pointed out in several places/discussions, e.g. [1-4].

Since the implementation seemed straight forward, I gave it a try and
implemented it to the Xdmf3 reader/writer in VTK. I created a merge
request in the hope to get comments and the code eventually merged into VTK:

I found two small bugs along the way and you can find a fix for them in
this merge request:

I implemented this directly in VTK since the upstream Xdmf repository is
already out of date and needs to be update (see [5] for more details).
