Just after I posted my question about how to plot lists of {x,y,z} data, 
I stumbled on the solution.  The functions ScatterPlot3D and 
ListSurfacePlot3D in the package Graphics`Graphics3D` do an admirable 
job with one exception:  They forget their default setting of 
BoxRatios->{1,1,.4} for data sets with lots of contrast or too many data 
points.  Manually setting BoxRatios makes them display the plots in an 
acceptable manner.  Forgettin to set the BoxRatios option manually 
results in some genuinely amusing plots.
