I think it is not all that trivial to program! A search at MathSource <http://www.mathsource.com> for contour AND lines finds: ExtendGraphics Packages for Mathematica 3.0 These files form a set of extended graphics functionality and are used and described in the book "Mathematica Graphics: Techniques and Applications" by Tom Wickham-Jones, published by TELOS/ Springer-Verlag 1994 ISBN 0-387-94047-2. They provide functions that include the plotting of surfaces and contours over random data sets, labelling of contour lines, plotting contours subject to a constraint, smoothing contours, plotting field lines, a collection of geometric functions in two and three dimensions, as well as the ubiquitous fractal plot. Some of the functions require MathLink binaries which are available in source code and are compiled for Macintosh and Windows computers.
