[vtkusers] Extrude along a polyline

I don't think vtk has such a filter. You could make copy of your 2d
polydata at each point in the polyline. Then generate a ruled surface
between each pair of polydata's. The tricky part is to orient the
polydata properly. A recently added remote module computes the
FrenetSerretFrame along a line:

The resulting frame could be used to align the polydata.

Just a half-baked idea,
