Feature request: extrude along path

Hi Clifford,

With all this 2D infrastructure work you've been doing, have you  
noticed any ways you might be able to include the ability to extrude a  
2D shape along an arbitrary path?

Thanks!

Andrew.

yeah, that would be nice.
For a simple way of specifying this, look at the VRML97 extrusion node:
http://www.web3d.org/x3d/specifications/vrml/ISO-IEC-14772-VRML97/part1/nodesRef.html#Extrusion

Extruding along a spline would of course be even nicer. I think Art of  
Illusion has support for this.
