There should only be changes in there to support minimum_distance stuff, but
that is also potentially a bunch of general-purpose math stuff, as well.

Yes, I am figuring this all out today. :)
Given that for basically everything other than blob and isosurface there is some
more straightforward way to figure out the minimum distance, it might end up
being that a bunch of the stuff I did for estimating it might not be necessary.
Put a post about it before I realized there were other responses here already.
