I wish it were that easy but unfortunately it isn't.  It would be nicer still if
this could be bundled into the same VTK wheels that we currently build. 
Unfortunately, I do not have the bandwidth to follow up with this right now.  If
VTK supported this easily enough then I am happy to build the wheels and push
them to pypi. :)
