	I wish to make a 3D plot of some discretely sampled
data I have.  My data comes most coveniently as x,y,z triplets.
Now, the natural command to use is ListPlot3D.  However,
ListPlot3D wants its input to be a 2D array, namely the z values
evaluated on the grid of (equally) spaced points in the x,y
plane.  This shows me the shape of my data just fine, but I
would like to have my real x and y values on the axes.  How can
I do this?  Is there another plotting command that will let me
pass my triplets of points?  This would also negate the need for
equally spaced data.  Thanks for any suggestions.
