Hi, Martin!

       If I understood right, you want to create a
vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm specialization so you can plug it in to a VTK
pipeline.  That would be "easy" if it were in C++, but it seems you want to
do it in pure Python.  Thus, your problem is two-fold:

   1) You need to learn know how to extend C++ classes in Python and make
your Python class usable in a C++ framework:

   2) You need to implement a custom sub-class of
vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm in Python to be able to plug it in to some VTK

     I've never tried it myself, but be ready for some real headaches as I
recall the pain that was to write CORBA wrappers for Java-C++

     I think you'd be better off if you write your custom
vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm subclass in C++ and use it in Python like
other VTK classes.  Overriding vtkUnstructuredGridAlgorithm alone will be
enough trouble.

all the best,
