cylindrical vector plot

	I am trying to create a 3D vector field plot, but in
cylindrical coordinates. My vector equation has two components, "phi"
and "z". Both of these components are dependent on radius, "r". I
guess I'm trying to figure out how to graph this in cylindrical
coordinates, as plotfield3D assumes cartesian coordinates. Ultimately
I would end up with a cylindrical vector field plot with arrows
pointing in some "phi" and "z" direction -- each arrow's magnitude and
direction is dependent upon r....
