It seems to be a good idea.
However, i have to apply the 3D raster patch[1] then as soon as
possible to get the voxel stuff working with large data. But this will
bring the risk of losing backward compatibility .... .

Please exclude the temporal GIS stuff in the tech-preview 7.0 release,
since so many manual pages are still missing.
