I think it is not all that trivial to program!  A search at MathSource
<> for contour AND lines finds: 

ExtendGraphics Packages for Mathematica 3.0

These files form a set of extended graphics functionality and are used
and described in the book "Mathematica Graphics: Techniques and
Applications" by Tom Wickham-Jones, published by TELOS/ Springer-Verlag
1994 ISBN 0-387-94047-2. They provide functions that include the
plotting of surfaces and contours over random data sets, labelling of
contour lines, plotting contours subject to a constraint, smoothing
contours, plotting field lines, a collection of geometric functions in
two and three dimensions, as well as the ubiquitous fractal plot. Some
of the functions require MathLink binaries which are available in
source code and are compiled for Macintosh and Windows computers.
