Once again, learn something new and really useful from this newsgroup! Just how general is this particular functionality? -- that is, how many other of Mathematica's graphic capabilities -- plot, listplot, 2D, 3D -- does it apply to? (I'll dig into the documentation myself, but maybe others are already up to speed on this without looking it up.)
