Very nice!  :)

This looks like just the thing to solve Ari's little project from a few years
ago:

You could make a very nice stone wall.

Also, I'm sure if there was pebble size control in different regions (controlled
by a function / pigment pattern?) that TdG would put that to amazing use in some
sort of landscape strata scene with amazing geological features.

And if it were function controlled, we all know that TOK would go completely
nuts crafting all sorts of geometric delights!

You're doing this by checking the possible bounding by 4x4x4 = 64 surrounding
cells?  Or is it really 5x5x5, so 125....  :O
