"A pliant method for anisotropic mesh generation"

I thought some of the mesh experts here might find this interesting.

Unfortunately this seems to have little to do with converting an
arbitrary 3D shape into a mesh.

Seconded. It's about getting more triangles from existing meshes. Useful
in some computations, but counter-productive for ray-tracing.

It could be interesting to oversample an existing mesh before deforming
it, but it is totally unrelated to the initial problem of converting a
shape into a mesh.

Oh well, I tried. :)
