I wish to be able to plot polyhedra given a table of (xyz) coordinates
for vertices. I'd be happy if I was restricted to tetrahedra, but would
prefer to be able to deal with general polyhedra. I can always plot the
polygons that make up the faces of the polyhedron but this seems a bit
tedious, is there a more efficient way than (for example)


Which involves putting in the coordinates of each vertex 3 times.
